Winter Walks on a Nature Trail

Winter activities on some trails involve speed and motorized equipment. On trails, such as those on the Kuse property, the emphasis is on taking time to experience what is found in nature. They are not plowed, so snowshoes or heavy boots are in order.

At any time of year, the same trail may be taken for a wide variety of reasons with the result that what is experienced will differ greatly. A scientist, historian, artist, writer, or someone intent on quiet meditation might all feel they are in different places even when they are all in the same location at the same time. It is also possible to select different purposes on different segments of the journey.
