Hibernation

I must admit, this article makes me hope we get some snow this winter. As a kid, I got the chance to experience snow in all its glory, from sledding down our neighborhood street to making a snowman or even a snow fort in our front yard.

When my kids were younger, I always tried to get them outside if it snowed. While we haven’t had a lot of snow over the years and don’t have a great big hill to sled down, we did have our driveway. I even have a few pictures to prove it. I’ve often thought I would love to spend a few days in the winter at our family cabin in Minnesota,

Anyway, the article is entitled “Don’t hibernate this winter” by Katherine Martinko over at Treehugger. I can only imagine what it’s like up north, especially in Winnipeg, where we got the chance to go for a day while on our family vacation a couple of summers ago.

Rewilding

I love the term, rewild. In a world that seems like it’s in a constant state of development, it’s a breath of fresh air to see a group trying to return the land back to what it was before we got here. The article is entitled “The New Outdoor Getaway: Landscapes That Have been ‘Rewilded’” by Nina Sovich over at the Wall Street Journal.
