Just because the temperatures are dropping, that doesn’t mean that your outdoor adventuring has to stop. In fact, there are plenty of fun activities to consider that are only available in the wintertime! With so many National Parks to visit and explore, consider planning out a trip to see what they have to offer during these colder months.

Hike One Of The Grand Canyon South Rim Hikes

Debatably one of the most ideal spots to see the best views of the Grand Canyon, a hike of the South Rim is one of our favorite winter activities.

The trails are less crowded and the temperature is comfortable, leaving you the ability to take your time while you revel in the beauty and scenery.
