A Beautiful Winter's Day - Finally!

There certainly haven't been too many of them this year, but after a fresh 6-8" in a blowing storm on Friday, Saturday the sun came out and we were on a long Bruce Trail snowshoe hike - a beautiful winter's day. Fresh snow was everywhere, sitting on every branch, draping the evergreens and making the snowshoes actually necessary - we traipsed heavily through 8-12 inches of snow, or even more where the snow had drifted off the fields.

An old gnarled ironwood draped with snow itself, in front of snow-covered evergreens.

Snow on every lower branch of a white pine along the trail in the pine plantation.

Down the rows of the 70 year old Norway spruce plantation, one of the oldest plantations in Grey County.
