Global Hiking News

Nepal

Perusing this morning’s Guardian newspaper I spotted this video of a blizzard on Nepal’s Annapurna Trail shot this week by British hiker Paul Sherridan.  It serves as a particularly sharp reminder to give careful consideration to the weather and clothing before setting out on any hike.

The temperature dipped into the 30’s last night in Ipswich, Massachusetts and is only just beginning to climb into the 40’s now that it’s mid-morning.  I’m thinking for comfort’s sake I’ll be bringing along gloves and maybe a hat when I hike in the next few days.
