Lynde Shores Conservation Park is a favourite hiking spot, but this trip marked my first winter adventure on the trails.
I get birds are designed to swim in even the coldest of weather, but still I got shivers watching the American Black Ducks and Canada Geese dive in the water.
All this winter wonderland almost makes up for the shoveling - almost.
The trails this year are probably the prettiest winter scenery I have seen in our region.
My daughter who smugly insists on packing a coffee even for a hike!
The birds and small animals are very tame and easily feed out of your hand.
With the sun beginning to set we thought it might be a good time to get out of the thick of the woods!
What a stunning grand finale for our hike to see the sunset over the marsh.
