First Day Hikes Promote Use of Winter Parks in Iowa
ELDORA, Iowa -- The cold did not stop First Day Hikers at Eldora this year. Last year, due to wind chill advisories, the state-wide First Day Hike was canceled. Across Iowa, there were 28 First Day Hikes. At Pine Lake State Park, the temperature was around 10 degrees as the hike began. But there was no wind, so over 20 people took off on a 1.5 mile hike, led by Park Ranger Andy Place.
