Dave, Me and Cindy having a Snow Picnic
A winter holiday in the Northern Canada is really something for someone like me, living in the warmer south. I just returned from a short holiday and I must admit I had a great time. As my brother said, when I arrived I thought -8 C was dam cold and by the end of my trip I was saying that -13 C in the sun was nice!!
Dave with me at the wheel, flying down the lake!!
I saw the Northern Lights, they are just as beautiful as they say, I had my first experiences on a snowmobile flying across a lake (well, when I was driving we weren't really flying but when my brother was we were!!) and I experienced a snow picnic at -17 C. I was amazed how warm the sun is when it is shining . If you were out of the wind it was wonderful.
One of those ptarmigans, they really blend into the snow
I didn't see a lot of wildlife but the ptarmigans were in town and often in sight. It was funny to all of a sudden see this snowball start moving and even take flight. When we were out on the lakes and in the bush we saw lots of tracks so you know lots of animals are there.
At the door of the Ice Castle, it had a wooden door!!
Out on Great Slave Lake, it seems to go on forever!!
At the Cabin, Do I look like a pro??
Sunset on the lake, aren't the colours lovely??
