Outside Adventures

Growing up I took figure skating lessons. I did it for years and really enjoyed it. Since then, I've skated on and off at public ice rinks and it's crazy how quickly and easily I remember how to skate. And now we live in a city that is full of outdoor skating rinks. You can skate on the lakes or on one of the man-made rinks. We checked out a track that they flooded to make into an ice rink a couple of weeks ago. I was nervous about skating after not doing it in years. But I quickly got into the rhythm and not once did I fall.

Our next ice skating adventure will be on Ramsey Lake. I've never skated on top of a body of water so I'm excited to head out on the lake!

Recently we also took a walk through Nickeldale Conservation Area. The walk started off with me trying to climb through 2 feet of snow to get to the trail. I lost my footing and fell into the snow bank. And then I couldn't get up because I was laughing so hard. Anyways, it was a great walk. The snow's incredibly deep throughout the conservation area now. But there are snowmobile tracks everywhere which luckily packed down some of the snow so we had a fairly stable path to walk along. Though, we did have our feet fall through the path a few times and we'd almost fall over.

A part of the path takes you behind a cemetery. It looked incredibly beautiful covered in snow.

The only wild life we saw... a gorgeous bird trying to blend into its surroundings.

February is more than half over which means we don't have much more of Winter left. There's still a couple of outdoor adventures I want to go on before the snow disappears. So I have some planning to do!

Have you been on any outside adventures recently?
