How to Find the Spirit of Canada’s Wilderness in Winter
February 22, 2016
It’s nearly the end of February – are you dreaming of a Nestor Falls Fly-In fishing trip yet? It’s tempting to get lost in your thoughts at one of our outposts! To beat cabin fever, Dave and I spend at least part of every day doing something outdoors. Whether it’s working or relaxing, we’re happy to be out in the fresh air. If you’re lucky to be in a place with snow like we are, then we’ve got some ideas to take your mind off that upcoming fly-in fishing trip!
(It will be almost as quiet as being at an outpost, sitting on the deck as the sun is setting. Almost.)
Pick up a pair of snowshoes.
If you’ve never gone snowshoeing before – or haven’t had snowshoes when you were a kid – why not give it a try? If you can walk, you can snowshoe! Kasey likes to go snowshoeing up here near the base. It’s very peaceful, especially when the snow is fresh.
Go on a cold-weather walk.
Take a long walk at a state park or forest and enjoy the solitude it brings. There’s nothing like being surrounded by beautiful trees – especially when everything is covered in a blanket of snow and is so quiet. It’s nice to get away from your technology and the demands of a busy life for an hour or two.
Look for wildlife.
You’ll see that nature still rules – even in your backyard! You may not have moose like up here in Ontario but there should be plenty of rabbits, owls, deer, and maybe even a fox or two.
Escape to the Wilderness,
