We’ve had one snow this winter here in the Southern Plains and Osage Hills of northeastern Oklahoma. One. Lousy. Snow.
Snow can be a pain in the butt, especially in places that aren’t used to seeing it much. Drivers here lose their minds if anything sticks.
But there are great pleasures to be had for the outdoorsy set when the snow starts piling up. Lacking anything to ski on, a good hike or run through the woods during or after a nice-sized snowfall will do just fine.
With each passing day, it looks like that may not happen down here. So in memory of winter wonderlands of times past, here is a gallery of snowy scenes from my local trails. Enjoy!
If you’ve run of hiked some trails during or right after a good now, you know how great that can be. Unfortunately, it looks like we’re going to miss out this time.
I could end up eating my words. Winter isn’t over. Judging from what I’ve seen in around here in the past, I’d happy to be wrong.
