Everyone knows I love the outdoors. I love hiking, I like just feeling good about the world, and there is always a lot of good around us to celebrate what is right in this world. It is a very cold morning right now outside as the clear sky starts to get light in the east this early. With our mild El Nino winter, it is hard to imagine that being down in the mid-20s right now is the most cold night we've had in 2010 so far! Now that is a mild winter! The bright clear morning however...now that is a celebration to kick off another great day. Celebrate what is right in the world around you, and you can start with a smile!
