Spring is HERE!

Yup, it is official. With rain showers and the occasional truly warm day, we must sadly say goodbye to another wonderful season of snow. Many moments stick out in my mind from a winter of both seasoned winter adventures, and a few individuals who have only seen snow a handful of times in their lives. Epic snowshoeing adventures in four foot snowdrifts, x-country skiing debacles ranging from super slick conditions to even a snapped pole by one of our guides were uncommon but entertaining, and of course beautifully still starry nights out on the frozen lake. I will miss the Columbians and their ungloved skiing antics, the Ole Mississippi university group who had endless energy and excitement, and of course Unionville High School with their polar dips into the lake, but it is the relaxed conversations in the deep couches by the fire or over home cooked meals that really cement the ideal of the winter experience in my mind.

Thank you to everyone who visited us for a great experience out there on the trails. Hopefully our paths will cross again in the bush, perhaps in a canoe or on a hiking trail in the seasons to come!
