I have just been blown away by nature's beauty lately. Logged some singletrack miles on the PCT this morning from Cascade Locks to a semi-frozen, spectacular Dry Creek Falls. I passed quite a few ultrarunners who seemed to glide over the snow--so sure-footed. I'm not there yet, but working on it. Yesterday, I ordered gaiters and the waterproof version of my favorite trail shoe (Altra Lone Peak) and finally bought warmer gloves so that my fingertips don't turn purple and white and go numb (Raynaud's syndrome) in freezing temps.
