In many areas of the country we are still surrounded by cold weather and snow. It may seem like it is going on forever with no end in sight, however tomorrow is the first day of March. Daylight savings time starts on March 10th (remember to change your clocks!), and the Spring Equinox is on March 20th. It may seem like we are stuck in a never ending cycle of snow, but spring is on its way!
Spring means warm weather is coming and hiking will no longer require cumbersome coats, numerous winter accessories, and even snow shoes in some places to just walk around. As we start to get out and hiking and enjoy the world waking back up, it is a good thing to remember that not only the plants are waking up, but the animals as well. Specifically, bears.
