Outdoor Family Life February Review

Well, February has come and gone faster than I can blink an eye.  This month was not a very active month as we had some extreme negative temperatures here in Minnesota and we all were hit with the flu.  That being said, I did manage to get some plans together for a spring break trip and start some cross country skiing.

Lessons Learned

1)  Time flies whether you are having fun or not.

2)  We should have started cross country skiing years ago.


We didn’t get any fishing in during February.  We had some extreme temperature drops and we all were sick at one point or another.  Plus, I had to travel for work 2 weeks out of the month.  Ice fishing is probably over for us this year as there are loads of snow on the lakes now after a huge storm that we had and we don’t have a snowmobile to get out there.

Cross Country Skiing

I tried out cross country skiing and loved it.  Kyle and Reid want to try it out as well, so this could be a new outdoor family winter activity for us in the future.  I could see us traveling around to different trail systems next year to ski, much like we travel around to different mountain bike trails in the summer.


We are getting a trip to Moab, Utah put together for later this spring.  Kyle and Reid are really looking forward to it.  We plan to stay at Deadhorse Point State Park, Canyonlands National Park and Sand Flats Recreation Area for some hiking and mountain biking.  I will write a full trip report on the trip when we return.  Let me know if you have any recommendations for the Moab area.
