Enjoying Winter

Several years ago, my parents built a log cabin on a beautiful piece of lakefront property in Eastern Ontario, just over an hour outside of Ottawa. While we spend most of our time there during the summer months when we can enjoy the water and the warm weather, I love going there in the wintertime. Since it is a fairly secluded lake, there is a real sense of peace there during this time of year: true silence and a pristine beauty that photographs and descriptions can never adequately convey. We were there last weekend with friends and below are photographs taken by me and by my friend Jessica Hodgson. We had beautiful weather and enjoyed hiking, snowshoeing, tobogganing, walking across the frozen lake and lots of eating, curled up by the fire with the dogs. Calories were burned off with so much outdoor activity! I love winter. Call me crazy, but I love it. Get out there and enjoy the season.
