More Winter Fun Outdoors

We took some time off to get some hiking and snowshoeing in before the winter ended (and because it felt like a great time to unwind from not-so-fun-stuff from everyday life).

We packed up a few essentials like warm thermals, hot tea, snacks and extra socks for the cold Northern winter and headed out to Algonquin Park (see map here).

Our first day there was absolutely beautiful. The sun was out, the weather was warm (by Canadian winter standards) and our trail was easy to handle.

    Oh Miho, how exciting it must have been to have the chickadee sit on your hand like that. I love those little birds but they always seem to be in motion. How cool it stayed long enough for you to get a photograph!

      Yes, we were lucky they stuck around long enough. I do love them, such sweet little things 🙂
