RECREATION | Winter Hikes 

We have to deal with the frigid temps and the mountains of snow on our daily commute, so we may not choose to encounter them when it's not necessary. But if we're stuck indoors for the workday, and are chased indoors by Old Man Winter on the off-times, we run the risk of turning into cave trolls. Bundle up! It's time for some fresh air and sunshine.

Genesee Country Village & Museum (1410 Flint Hill Road, Mumford) will host Cabin Fever Reliever Nature Hikes with naturalist and wildlife educator Ron Walker each Sunday in February, 2-3:15 p.m. Wear sturdy boots and be prepared to learn about winter birds, animal tracks, or other signs of local wildlife and natural minutiae. The hike fee is $5-$6. For more information, call 538-6822, or visit

Clean snow and the lack of foliage tend to make everything look stark and peaceful, and Mount Hope Cemetery is no exception. A winter tour of lovely Mount Hope Cemetery (1133 Mt. Hope Ave.) will take place Saturday, February 15, at 1 p.m. Future winter tours will be held on Saturdays, March 15 and April 19, both at 1 p.m. The price to participate is $5, and free to Friends of Mount Hope members and children under age 16. For more info, call 461-3494 or visit
