Snowy Walk

I did it. Yesterday I wrapped up warm in winter coat, gloves, scarf and snowboots and headed out into the cold.


It was -3C when I started my walk so quite chilly. I was determined to get out and about and take some photos. I meant to just walk down to the end of the neighbourhood roads but once there I found myself still going and walked down to Asylum Lake and around a little bit. The bridge was quite snowy and icy - the air gets underneath it and makes it quite slippery.


I was the first person to walk along here since the snow. No other footprints except mine.



It all looks so white and peaceful. There were other footprints at this point but I didn't see anyone else.



This is the serene beauty of winter.



“There is nothing in the world more beautiful than the forest clothed to its very hollows in snow. It is the still ecstasy of nature, wherein every spray, every blade of grass, every spire of reed, every intricacy of twig, is clad with radiance.” William Sharp
The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found? J. B. Priestley

  1. Lovely photos and amazing that you don't have to go far to get out in the country. With a temp of around 26F you needed that nice warm scarf you knitted. Did the dog stay home?

  2. It always looks lovely but it terrifies me to walk on snow and ice. Fortunately we haven't had any really cold weather yet.

  4. Your photos are lovely!

    Well done on venturing out in the cold and snow! Please be careful walking alone on slippery, icy paths, though! Hope you treated yourself to a mug of hot cocoa or tea, after your cold walk!
