Snow! Just a dusting, but it made me happy none the less!

On our last full day in Nelson, the four of us took a short drive up to the Whitewater Ski Resort, which offers downhill skiing and snowboarding, as well as cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails. The trails were very beautiful and we only encountered one other person. We wound our way through the woods, past partially exposed streams and snow-laden trees. A beautiful, peaceful, magical place.

The heavy snow turned the smaller trees into giant fiddlehead shapes.

A little stream trickled away under the snow. There were spots where animals had jumped across it and scampered away through the woods.

We all had a very slow and quiet day for Boxing Day. There was a blanket of fresh snow all around.

Awoke to new snow falling and a fresh unspoiled blanket of white.

We popped into town briefly for a bit of browsing and then home to lounge around and watch Christmas movies. Perfect!

The right number of pigeons for a small town! They seemed to be finding something to eat in the snow.
