Hiking To "Bear Cave" In Search Of Icicles

in life •  last month

Back in January @melodyrussell and myself had the afternoon off together and kid free so we hit up one of our closest and favorite hiking spots!!

Just a short 5 minute drive from home is a NPS trail down to bear cave!!

It's gorgeous any time of year but we like to go when there's a little snow on the ground!!

White Nose Syndrome has hit Missouri so most of the small cave entrances like this have been barred off.

I'd say we were pretty successful at finding a few icicles!!

I complain about the cold and the snow (cuz where I live -20, -30 is the usual in the winter) but damn these stunning pictures of yours make me actually appreciate the beauty of winter!
