Snow and Frozen Lakes Around Burns Lake

Mid December 2018

Short days, long nights, frozen lakes, and lots of snow! It must be December in most of Canada! However, being a Vancouver Island gal this is a new experience for me!

My hands and face are drier than I’ve ever experienced and my fingers keep splitting around the nails. But the low temperatures are quite tolerable, which surprises me;  as the damp cold from the coast (with added wind factor) often chills my bones more than this crisp cold–so far!  I keep being told it is a mild winter so far, so my opinions may well change in the coming months.

Meanwhile, I have purchased an annual membership to the Omineca cross country ski club; and ice fishing and snow shoeing with friends are on my bucket list. The bears are hibernating, the moose population is low this year, and there are NO MOSQUITOES! Wahoo!
