Bed of frozen leaves insulating the trail, making cautious footing. Sunlight warm enough to awaken warrior insects whose tribes still slumber.
Forest bed warm and wet, moss still inviting.
Summit snow and wind blowing dagger ice chunks from trees.
Peanut butter and jelly sandwich on cold rocks in the warm sun.
The tween season can be challenging, but like everything else in life you have a good chance of succeeding if you prepare yourself, think about layers, and appreciate what you have.
