March nears the end

Yes, March is about over, and things are quickly moving towards springtime activities, but WAIT! There is snow in the air, and in the forecast! Actually, quite a bit of it. Too bad we are coming into a weekend, but things should be pretty fun if we even get only the lower amounts of the predicted snowfall. Some creamy, damp snow to cover up some ruts and frozen mank and bring in the end of a pretty good month and season overall.
This can be a great time of year, and usually is. Although we do not typically get any kind of predictable freeze/thaw cycle, there is usually some good snow up high and the occasional snowfall making for some great spring powder runs.

But one can also get out on their bike. Sure the roads are dry, but some trails are starting to shape up as well. On Tuesday, I checked out the WF Trail, and it was 80% clear and dry, all the way to the Goegan Rd., about 4 miles along. Past that, it is mostly still frozen snow, but some valley rain should begin to take care of that.

Also, the fisherpeople are out and about, as the temps warm up and the trout start to feed. Before the big meltdowns can be an awesome time to drop a few tight lines and get your summer season rolling.

For the highly motivated, it is a great time to multiple event in a day. You can do all of the above, plus some more if you want to.

Why Not?!
