HIKING -- Enough walkers have been out on Tubbs Hill overlooking Lake Coeur d'Alene to pack trails and make for easy walking, that is if you have ice-grabbing traction devices on your boots.

"Tubbs Hill hike this morning, great way to work off some of that excellent Christmas dinner," reports David Taylor. "Trail is packed snow with a few icy spots, no problem walking with Yaktrax on my boots."

However, with some 5 inches of snow in the forecast, expect to be breaking trail soon. Snowshoes might be more appropriate tomorrow.
