Winter is upon us, and it's time for some cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
The Jack Creek Preserve is a gem near Ennis that's accessible year-round. While you're enjoying views of the Madison Range, you're more likely to run into a bear than other people. It makes a great winter weekend escape.
