Daddy-Kid Hike III – February 13, 2016

Daddy-Kid Hike III

Saddler’s Woods, Haddon Township, NJ
Trail info – Saddler’s Woods

So our original Daddy-Kid Hike III in January was postponed, because The Pres got very sick.  I rescheduled for February 13th, which turned out to be about 6 degrees when we got out there.  Unsurprisingly, The Pres and I were the only ones dumb enough to show up!  Wrapped up in all the layers ever, we ventured out for a hike of a bit more than a mile, enjoying the silence and stillness of a morning cold enough for even the birds to hide out.
