@themusicalmountaineers @resonantd hi there! The violin does great, shockingly, in the cold! When I bring it home, I let it air out so any moisture can evaporate. Ideally, I’d like to upgrade to a @luisandclark_instruments violin, but for now, mine is working beautifully!

How do you play instruments in the cold? How does the violin stay in tune? These are some of the common questions we hear when we share some of our snowshoe adventures into the wilderness! Performing in 12 degrees (or below!) is indeed a challenge,Skykomish, Washington

@danielle_marie_winkler Death Valley is one of my most favorite places on this planet! Kris and I always have the most magical revelations when we spend time out there and I couldn’t agree more with your words! Two weeks ago we went out to the Saline Valley Hot Springs up on the north west side of the park and it was nothing short of magical! I highly HIGHLY recommend spending some time out in that part of the park. The dirt road getting in is long, but gorgeous and in good condition. You don’t need 4x4 or high clearance.
