JohnA: 4 Seasons In 1 Trail Walk

JohnA: Well, in typical March weather we experienced all four seasons on our walk with the Big Dog on the Trail of the Coeur d'Alene's near Medimont today. What began with the brilliant sunshine and warmth of summer gave way to fall-like thunder, lighting and rain, followed by a hail shower resembling the best thing any winter had to offer. When the sun finally came out again it was with the chilly feel of spring, displaying a remarkable double rainbow, and we knew the walk had come a full four season circle. Meanwhile we saw a herd of 20 elk roaming the pasture, oblivious to the half dozen whitetails nearby and a pair of soaring eagles overhead. If there is a more beautiful place on earth in the spring I'm assured I've yet to find it.

Question: Have you been out for any extended walks this spring?
