The Weather 

Winter is the most dramatic season of the year in terms of changing landscapes. If you’ve seen a landmark in the summer or fall, odds are it’s going to be an entirely new experience in the winter. The snow-capped mountains, the beautiful trees sprinkled in white, the tranquil camping spots – the beauty is endless.

And I don’t know about you, but I prefer to put on a sweater to brave the brisk as opposed to sweltering heat and humidity. Traveling in the winter is just more comfortable for a lot of people.

Not to mention, an entirely new set of activities become available in the winter like skiing, sledding/tubing, snowshoeing, snowboarding-and cozying up to a warm campfire with some hot cocoa. It’s just an exceptional time of year.
