The days are getting longer.
The snow is receding.
The frozen lakes are melting.
That can only mean one thing — SHOULDER SEASON IS HERE!
Shoulder season comes twice a year and goes by many names: mud season, in-between season, road trip season, temporada media, etc. For those of you who don’t have the luxury of living in the mountains, shoulder season is that time of year that’s not quite winter but not quite spring (or not quite fall but not quite winter). It’s usually accompanied by dreary, rainy days and can lead directly to an increase in drinking alone while you dream of sunnier times.
