Back to snowy walks with a small dog

Winter arrived this week. I'm happy to see snow, and don't generally mind the cold, as long as it's a bit warmer than -30 C (the coldest thus far this week was an early morning -20 with windchill to -26). Shadow and I have been waiting until after lunch to go out this week, though I prefer to get the day's walk out of the way earlier.

Here are a few images and a video from this week's walks:


Mountain ash berries are pretty with snow...


The river is slowly freezing (when it isn't thawing -- 
our cold snaps keep getting interrupted with temperatures
in the pluses... 


It's hard to see, but Shadow has a white beard
from licking snowbanks as he romps along...


Gallagher Park -- arguably the city's best tobogganing hill...


We love living so close to the river valley...


No ducks left here...


and long shadows at two p.m....



If you've never walked a small dog in the snow, this is what it's like, minus the cold fresh air... Have a good weekend, friends!
