Summer under Snow

It is a chilly -23 ish this morning and that’s without the windchill….So I took my trusty little Fuji camera outside and braved the cold to take some photos

“Because I am a Canadian Girl” 😀

So not me

We Canadian Girls are Tough 😀

Yes that’s me for those of you who are wondering…

Pffffftttt I am so not telling you the truth right now!

This girl is actually from Wisconsin Crazy American Girls  😀

You’ll see by the photos we were a little late putting some things away before the snow, must have been busy filling the cooler 😀

The Ice Trail – Arrowhead Provincial Park

I have camped at Arrowhead Park during the summer months, it’s beautiful.  The park has always been open in the winter and offered crosscountry ski trails, snowshoeing, hiking and have now added a skating trail!  I’ve skated on outdoor rinks and on the Rideau Canal in Ottawa but never through the forest.

We only live about an hour away from the park, great way to spend the day, I can’t wait to go !

 

The Ice Trail at Arrowhead Provincial Park

Opened in 2012 at Arrowhead Provincial Park just north of Huntsville, the Ice Trail is a 300 metre skate path set amidst the snow-dusted trees that wind through the East River Campground. Offering skate rentals for the whole family, this totally unique trail is a fantastic activity that lets you explore Ontario’s great outdoors in winter in a fun new way.

Whether you are an expert skater or just starting out, the Ice Trail offers an opportunity for anyone, regardless or age or ability, to enjoy the fresh air this season. Day time skating parties can also be arranged, and camp sites can be booked for afternoon campfires, for time with family and friends. Such a blast!

Click here for some video scenes of the Ice Trail (around .5 secs and .39 secs….)

For more information about the trail, including hours of operation, weather conditions or bookings, please call the Arrowhead Provincial Park at 705-789-5105. See you on Ontario’s favourite outdoor ice trail!

I’m tired revisited

The days have been so grey and we haven’t really seen and sunshine in about a month so here it is

I wrote and posted in this in August, somehow I think I could post this everyday 😀

I’m Tired

Every so often I just get tired, tired of working, tired of cooking and cleaning, tired of the constant debates with the kids, tired of my responsibilities,  and tired of being so damn happy and positive all the time!

I am just tired today, my body feels heavy and I have aches and pains and my brain is not working to its usual full capacity 🙂 

No Mother I was not drinking last night!  I’m tired of that too.

So I think I’ll just go to bed .

I usually “Count my Blessings”  but am too tired for that as well.

Tommorow is a new day!
