Winter Chill

Winter pictures is something I haven’t really done before.  Usually, I go into hibernation and don’t come out until it is warm and sunny.  This year I’m trying to push myself outside of my boundaries and get a little more adventurous, which means that winter hiking is a must!  Although I would much rather be snowshoeing through the trails, there is barely any snow right now, and hiking is turning more into slowly shuffling through the woods trying not to slip down into the ravine because the trails are nothing but ice.  The day I took this picture featured one bruised elbow on Shaugn’s part, and me almost sliding down the hill after trying to read a map that was surrounded by ice.  Nonetheless, getting outside and adventuring to all of these places is one of my favourite things, and I’m hoping to get out a lot more as the winter goes on!

Mooney’s Pond

What a beautiful hidden gem this was!  I’ve been trying to find all these little place on the Island to take pictures of while the leaves are changing colour (and still on the trees..), and this was top of the list.  The trip wasn’t even all that planned.  I looked out my window one day, saw it was sunny, packed up my gear, and left.  One RCMP check stop and two wrong turns later, I found myself at the foot of a trail leading down to this beautiful pond.

This picture has inspired me to challenge myself to post a new picture every week.  That’s right, you’ll have to deal with me every. single. week.  Whether it be a picture from a hike I recently took, or a throwback (Thursday-style), I want to commit to delivering content every week for the rest of the year.  Let me know your thoughts, and if it goes well, maybe I’ll continue it into the new year!
