Here in the NC mountains we have been experiencing colder than usual temperatures for extended period of times. As much as I detest my face hurting when I walk outside, the frozen beauty the single digits bring is almost worth it. My hubby and I started the year off with a couple of chilly hikes. It was so cold my phone stopped working mid-hike and had to be warmed up before I could take more pictures. So these aren’t my best work but I risked hand frost-bite to get them! I’ve coupled the pictures with some motivational quotes to get the year started right!
