1. Shake Off That Cabin Fever Through Ice Fishing

    Ice fishing is one of those wintry adventures that might be the perfect way to shake off cabin fever and get outdoors.

    Ice fishing season is from December to late February when the ice is the most solid. It is important to note that fishers must use extra caution on lakes under 8,000 feet in elevation. The thickness of the ice is of utmost importance. You don’t want to be skating on thin ice in the middle of your trip or use your life jacket.

    And for those looking for winter activities, it’s hard to beat the quiet landscapes, breathtaking scenery and tranquility of the wilderness that surround the lakes.

    And, if you have a family, ice fishing provides some fresh air and creates fond memories with a sense of adventure.

    Before you head out in the frigid temperatures for this cold-weather adventure, there are a few things to bring on the trip.

Higher temperatures may harden the surface of the fruit or vegetable and prevent dehydration. The oven door should be left open a few inches to allow moisture to escape. 

    Fruits that work well include:
