New Snow On Moffat’s Path

A trail near my house which I have named Moffat’s Path after the owner of the land, looks good all year round.

After a fresh snowfall it looks spectacular.

Arrival

The seasonal changeover has happened and Winter has arrived.

The lake froze over a couple of days ago and we have seen some snow.

More snow to come, no doubt!

Approaching Freeze-Up

The lake is waiting for the right opportunity to cover itself for Winter.

Patience is the key now.

Winter Birds

Chickadees stay over the winter.

It helps if there is a feeder full of Black Sunflower Seeds in the vicinity.

The Trails Behind My House

The area behind my house is mostly rock and undeveloped bush. At a time long in the past we would have been situated on an island, but when the glaciers melted and the lake drained, the island ended up connected with the mainland by a low-lying piece of land. A twenty foot rise in water level would put us back on an island again.

In “recent” years, recreational walking trails have developed and lately a map and signs have appeared. Winter, and the advent of “snowshoeing” as a recreational activity have made walking these trails a fun thing to do. They become packed hard enough that snowshoes are not required much of the time. If one wishes to set off through the bush off the trail, then snowshoes are a necessity but a pleasant trek through the bush can be had without them. The absence of leaves makes it possible to see some of the features of the area.

Opportunities for photographs are numerous.

Sharing the experience of the trails is particularly special.

Delicate Snowstorm

No wind.

Just large snowflakes in profusion.

The leaves of last Summer will remain until Spring.

To be replaced by new life.

Winter On Four Mile Bay

When Trout Lake freezes, the ice becomes a highway for recreational vehicles.

The tracks they leave differ from the tracks of summer.

Historic Highway

The Lavase River was used to transport furs from the West to Montreal.

Northwest Company canoes passed this spot in Spring and Fall from 1779 to 1821.

Up ahead just around the corner, is Lake Nipissing.

Winter Walk

The ice on One Mile Bay is safe to walk on.

A sunny Sunday afternoon is a very pleasant time to get some exercise.
