When I was growing up in Toronto we used to have a lot more snow that made the air feel clean and fresh, unlike in the recent years where winter comes with flu and sickness because of the chilled windy air and the lack of snow. Walking through the beautiful scenic wilderness in Copeland forest at Horseshoe Resort with our snowshoes, I felt how much of this we miss living in the city.
There was a sense of calmness and thankfulness being surrounded by the trees that were heavy with snow. Walking by water trickling ponds and listening to the winter birds felt very pleasant.
I was able to take some wonderful portraits of my family in the snow surrounded by the green wonders. Horseshoe Resort also has cross country skiing in these trails, which would be another wonderful way to admire the nature, exercise and relax our minds.
If you haven't snowshoed before think of it has wearing a big pair of shoes attached to your boots that allows you to walk in deep snow. We can rent snowshoes at Horseshoe resort, so we don't have to buy or take our own.
This would be a fun winter activity to do with the little ones and to take the whole family during the Family day weekend, Valentines or March Break.
