We had a beautiful break in the weather Sunday and Hu-dad suggested squeezing in a walk.
We haven’t had any measurable snow in weeks (very strange for this time of year), but we have certainly received lots and lots of rain. Walks around our house are on dirt roads, which mean mud roads right now. But we loaded up in the Jeep and headed for the Hominy Creek River Park – where the Hominy Creek comes into the French Broad River in Asheville. They have a terrific greenway that runs along the riverbank. We often walk there in the winter month because our high elevation trails are inaccessible due to closed roads.
As we mentioned above, we haven’t really seen winter for several weeks, but it is coming back with a vengeance this week. Our high at the house Sunday was 54ºF (12ºC) (upper 60’s in Asheville), but we will not see above freezing temperatures until next weekend. In fact, lows will be below 0ºF (-18ºC) midweek – much more to our liking (though Hu-dad seems to be grumbling about it).
Happy Trails and Happy Monday!
P.S. – Thanks for all of the comments, questions and suggestions. We will be addressing those in upcoming blog posts.

Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,500 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window. This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
