Out in nature
Winthrop Rink, Methow Valley, WA
Bald eagles commute overhead, and Mt. Gardner presides over the Sawtooth Range to the west.
The scene: Sporty locals lace up their skates and skis here at the Community Trailhead (a 22-mile riverfront trail), a short walk over a new pedestrian suspension bridge to town.
The inside scoop: Wannabe hockey players can test their mettle during friendly open "Sticks and Pucks" sessions.
