A Snowy Walk Through Muskego County Park

Three hours into the latest snowfall, I took a hike through the trails at Muskego County Park. I felt a sense of peace and tranquility. The trees and falling snow have an insulation effect that makes it incredibly quiet in there.

Muskego County Park is a hidden gem in our community. It’s a place where you can escape some of the mundane routines of life and though-by-thought reduce the clutter in your head.

The trees are bare, their leaves replaced by a layer of frost. The ground is white with some footprints from a couple of people and a couple of dogs that passed before me. It’s a reminder that just as the seasons change, so too does our life.

I’m so grateful for this park, a place where I can come to relax, reflect, and connect with nature.

Some tips for making the most of your winter walk:

  • Dress warmly in layers. My body temperature rose during the walk and it was nice to take off a hat, jacket, and gloves.
  • Wear good boots with ankle support. You’ll want to have traction on the snow and ice. There are a lot of spots where you can twist an ankle!
  • Be careful of icy patches. Walk slowly and carefully, especially if you’re using walking poles.
  • Enjoy the scenery! Take some time to appreciate the beauty of the winter landscape.
  • Leave the music and podcasts behind. Let silence be what fills your ears!

The LoveHandle solves this problem elegantly with its thin and sleek design. It attaches easily to the back of most smartphones and tablets with a strong, no-residue adhesive, adding minimal bulk.
