Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

Custer State Park South Dakota winter

Some do not care for winter and the snow and cold temperatures, but with adventure travel and photography, winter and snow just adds a new dimension. Skiing of course is the main winter activity, but winter backpacking is also a great activity.

One great aspect about winter backpacking is you do not have to worry about water. Just grab a handful and throw it on a stove and in five minutes you have water. Another perk is it keeps your drinks cold. The main advantage the winter brings is sheer beauty. Snow on a landscape makes it that much more amazing to the eyes in my opinion. This photo comes from the border of the Black Hills National Forest and Custer State Park in South Dakota.

Stay tuned,
