In recent weeks, I have had travel plans affected by two different snow storms. The first one was a typical winter snow storm in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. The second one was Snowstorm Jonas in Richmond, Virginia. Each snow storm had a different effect on my plans but neither storm ruined by plans. They simply changed my plans. Here are some of my favorite activates to do when a snowstorm ruins your travel plans
A cold wind slams into me as I walk out the Keflavik International Airport. I am actually in Iceland and it’s early February. I unlock my rental car and program my Reykjavik hostel into my GPS unit. I would have brought my own car, but considering I had only recently got it, I thought this time around, renting a car would be for the best. Saying this, I do have trips I want to go on and if it wasn’t for doing research into dealerships like Conklin Chevrolet, I probably wouldn’t even have a car and the idea of a road trip wouldn’t be possible! Anyway, I have my hostel for tonight book and have to return the rental car in two and half weeks. I am about to embark on a winter road trip in Iceland without a plan. I have a 10 item bucket list of things I want to do.
Every Thursday, I will be posting a photo from my travels. Today’s Photo Thursday comes from Mount Rainier National Park in Washington, USA. This photo was taking on during an after work snowshoeing adventure. A friend and I got off work and decided we would hike from Paradise Inn to Longmire on the Narada Falls Trail. It was early season so snowshoes and a good sense of navigation. We had to race against the clock to get down the mountain in time to catch the last shuttle back up to Paradise Inn. On a quick water break, we found this marvelous view of Paradise River and the snow pack.
