Sunny day off, snow on the ground, seemed like the perfect opportunity to visit Dawes Arboretum in order to enjoy it in its winter glory. Well worth the drive.
If you get a chance to go to Dawes Arboretum in the winter, I highly recommend it! I’d also recommend parking at the visitor center and hiking back to Holly Hill rather than taking the auto loop. It was a bit hairy due to the ice on all of the hilly bits. Our vehicle actually got stuck, but staff very kindly unstuck us with their tractor and a minimum of teasing.
