Winter In Cape Cod/ Door County

The winters vary in severity. One winter you will get 3 snowstorms and in-between it will be 40, 50, dare I say 60 degrees? Other winters it is bitter cold with tons of snow, no snow, and any other combination you can possibly think of. What is the deal? Well they say that the warmer than usual  Northern Pacific Ocean this winter will cause a cold snowy winter in the Northeastern U.S. That means I am in trouble. I live in Rhode Island now.

Door County has already seen its first snow of the season and with the wind off of Green Bay All of Door County is down right bone chilling even in 40 degree weather with all that moisture in the air.

I took a few chilly photos in down town Sister Bay.
You won't be sailing today.

 Sunrise is pretty!

 Sometime you need get started on your snow fort early. A dusting of snow won't stop us from having some fun.

Action shot here to the right with my shovel trying really hard to get enough snow for a sweet fort for my three year olds.

Sunset Trail

We decided to take a bike ride on Sunset Ttail from our campsite at Nicolett Bay campground. I attached a bicycle trailer to my new huffy bike. We loaded the boys in it with their cool blue bike helmits secured to their heads.  It was a hard packed trail with smaller rocks and a few rocks to ride around. I thought to myself that the trail reminded me of the Highline Trail in Glacier National Park with Green Bay subsituting for Lake McDonald even though the Highline Trail doesnt run beside Lake McDonald. Anyway it was a nice easy stroll. My Huffy had issues as I approached Middle Road . I couldnt get up a small steep hill with 60 plus pounds on the trailer so I had to walk up. It was a bit ackward, but I managed. Ellie didnt have her breaks properly adjusted, so she was a bit nervouse on hills and took an appropiate amount of caution walking in places or utilizing her feet to slow herself. We saw cliffs, water, turkeys, and excersise to be had by all.
