I meant to post this last month and since it’s already February I knew it was due to post.
If you read my last blog post I briefly mentioned I had a few things planned, one of them was hiking and although the weather wasn’t the best I didn’t let it hinder my birthday plans.
I won’t lie I was worried because while I’ve hiked in the spring,summer and fall I never hiked in the winter and wasn’t sure I was equipped with the right snow boots (I wore my Dr. Martens) but I should invest in some snow boots!
I thought well if I can barely walk through the snow or I slip and fall on my ass we’ll just call it a day, at least we can say we tried 🤷🏻♀️ and although I almost face planted once and occasionally walked in the snow like a baby deer (or those models with super high heels walking down the run way) I managed to hike it through to the scenic waterfall and it was beautiful. My curious conscious wanted to go closer but I’ve seen too many lifetime movies and fail videos to do that!
It was really breath-taking and being that it was our first time at this part of the state park we were enthusiastic we discovered a new place to hike with such a beautiful view. All I can say is that was a great way to spend my birthday and I’m glad I got to see it and spend that day with Marcin. ❤️
Normally my fiancé and I would venture out hiking around early-mid spring time but yesterday’s weather was too good to pass up. We hiked 3 miles at one of our favorite hiking spots, we wanted to walk longer but there was a good amount of snow from days before which blocked the path so we had to turn back. It was a much needed last minute trip and I can’t wait for us to go back! Oh and Marcin sprayed cologne before the hike 🤣 who does that?!
All photos were taken by my fiancé, I took a few but they weren’t as esthetic as these. Im so proud of marcin and I because we made a pact this year to really live in the moment and not let good opportunities like this pass by, had I been in my old mindset I probably would’ve just settled for a day home indoors and later regret not taking the chance to enjoy a nice stroll on a warm day.
I’m thinking of making another post with a few of my hiking tips let me know if you’d be interested in that post.
