Snowshoe | Fernan Saddle via Stuck in North Idaho

Snowshoeing | Fernan Saddle

Snowshoeing is probably my new favorite winter activity. It’s a great way to get outside in the winter without the risk of torn ligaments and bruises from falling, unless you happen to be extraordinarily klutzy. But for me, one of the best parts of snowshoeing is our proximity to some pretty awesome trails.

Motorcycle trip to Jerry Johnson Hot Springs | Stuck in North Idaho

This nature preserve is home to over 27 species of birds as well as other wildlife like deer, moose, beaver, and otter. The tall grasses and marshy landscape provide a refuge for waterfowl and great hunting grounds for osprey. The BLM and Nature Conservancy teamed up to preserve this area and manage…
