Jay Cooke State Park held it's first snow shoe walk of the season on new year's day. The brisk, clear winter day was ideal for the season's inaugural snowshoe hike through the woods. Carly Hawkinson-Sohm is an interpretive park naturalist and says this is a great program to get people outdoors on the first day of the year.

She says it helps people get the year started on the right foot being outside, enjoying nature and being active.

Even though the temperature was on the cool side, Hawkinson-Sohn said the trails through the woods are sheltered so there is no wind chill to deal with.

She said it's just a beautiful hike through the park with all the fresh fallen snow. For a list of up-coming snow shoe hikes and other outdoor programs, go to the Jay Cooke State Park website.
