Project 366 – Post No. 227 – Frozen beaver dam

What is Project 366? Read more here.

So winter is definitely here. The snow arrived over the weekend and the temperature has dropped drastically. This morning as we were heading to the Whitemud Creek the mercury was at -24C. It was a beautiful clear morning, the sun was beaming from a clear blue sky and, yes it was cold but the absence of a breeze made it tolerable. Of course, all the winter her was required; long johns, layer upon layer on the upper body, heavy duty kits, double toques and Little Hotties stuffed into the boots. Other then the Black-capped Chickadees and cawing of ravens on the distance we did not see much of the fauna. It was nevertheless a beautiful walk and the fresh snow and frozen creek turned a familiar landscape into something magical.
