The snow arrived just in time for the ‘after Christmas‘ holiday. We have been blessed with unusual warmer weather this season that was extended all the way to Christmas Day.

I am kind of glad that there was no snow before and for Christmas. The winter snowstorm driving conditions can add to the holiday shopping stress. It is also nice to have nice comfortable drive when visiting loved ones for Christmas.

When snow arrived all I wanted is run to the Sheppard’s Bush Conservation Area. I never been there during the winter season. When we arrived there yesterday I was really surprised how beautiful the trails were, especially when under sparkling white blanket of snow. The picnic pavilion and the maple syrup evaporator shack were exceptionally magical when surrounded by the snow.

I also noticed that the Sheppard House was not under construction anymore. It is possible that the heritage retrofit is now completed.

We probably walked for about 1/2 hour. It was nice to see that the trail is used regularly. It was only two days of snow and the trails were completely padded. They were very comfortable to walk on.

I was hoping for some animals like deer or even a rabbit, but all we found was black squirrels. I shot some photos of the birds but that will be my future post.

I am living in Aurora and this is my photo journal blog. A picture says 1000 words - but not always, so I write. You don't have to travel 1000 miles to find a treasure - all I have to do is zoom through my lens and I will find it for you here in Aurora.


  1. Anna,

    I am having troubles commenting on blogs having embedded comment sections (don’t know why); so I am leaving the comment I prepared for your Only Photo Blog Journey here, all right?

    “Happy New Year, Anna!

    Girl, I had already seen this picture on G+ but it looks much better here.
    Picnic pavillion…it is the first time I hear of this, because I am used to picnic fields or parks (here in Portugal), but again our weather is not the same as yours.

    Maple syrup: love it, adore it, love and adore it lol. You should definitely attend those syrup making festivities.

    I agree, the natural wood does render the photo magical. Although I prefer the first picture, the second one is more postcardish…

    Happy New Year, my friend; and may our friendship continue to grow :D.
