Walking in a winter wonderland: Winter Hike Season Approaches

Posted on Wednesday, September 28th, 2016 by »

Golden Canine is ready for winter hikes! Are you?

It’s time to at least start thinking about where the snowshoes are. And, while you are thinking about that, how about thinking about where you want to wear them this year and whether you would like to take some other folks with you. Our next newsletter publishes on the 15th, and we’d love to have your ideas on winter hikes to add to the content. October 5-ish is the deadline, but don’t worry too much about that. If you miss the newsletter deadline, we will still love it if you lead a hike.
