Limberlost Forest Winter Wonderland
We adore the outdoors; especially in the summer- so we wouldn’t have guessed that our second trip in the middle of winter would have been even more enjoyable.
Our timing was perfect as we arrived a day after Limberlost
Forest was kissed with a heavy snowfall.
Welcome to Limberlost Forest and Wildlife Reserve
Before settling in at Long House-our cottage for the weekend, we walked the snowy trail and took in the beautiful winter landscape.
The very spacious Long House
Trees were covered in fluffy white snow, and giant jewelled icicles hung from eavestroughs above our heads.
The next morning we were greeted by even more snow. The Longhouse was outfitted with 2 pairs of snow shoes, and several cross country skis, so we strapped ourselves in and headed out for some fun.
The lake was frozen over and blanketed with several inches of soft white powder so of course we made a b-line directly to the frozen water.
Looking out across the lake all we could see was thousands of flakes dancing around, a snowy forest of trees curving all around us, and a bright white wall of winter.
What made it all even more beautiful was the stillness.
So much snow everywhere
Standing in the middle of a frozen lake, and never ending white light-there was nothing but the sound of silence.
When we were not outside in the winter wonderland, we were cozied up inside close to the wood stove, playing board games, and enjoying the moment.
No internet, no television, just calm, peace, quiet, and in the moment.
It was a perfect getaway just before our busy trip to Japan!
We hope to visit Limberlost Forest and Wildlife Reserve again this coming summer to experience another beautiful season in Northern Canada.
