Chris Miles here and what a gorgeous day we have today in late February! I hope you get a chance to get outside for a bit and enjoy it.
What do you like to do on days like this?
I would like to get in a hike or maybe a walk today. Just to get outside and enjoy the weather. No real place to go just go for a stroll.
