Snowshoeing at Crawford Lake Conservation Area

Gord and I went snowshoeing at the Crawford Lake Conservation Area this afternoon (about 45 minutes west of Toronto).

We started on the Snowshoe Trail (3.4km - 1 hour 30 minutes - This trail has been designed with snowshoers in mind. Enjoy the beauty of winter as you wind your way through field and forest).

I only fell once as we were heading to a new trail. Ha!

Then we did the Escarpment Trail (2.4 km - 1 hour - This natural trail winds through rocky woodlands and along the brow of the Niagara Escarpment. A highlight is the lookout where interpretive cairns and resting benches are located).

The first part is definitely a natural trail as it is almost non-existent and we were climbing over logs and rocks. We spent some time at the lookout ... it was so peaceful. The second half is a well-groomed trail.

What a fun day! We were snowshoeing for 2.5 hours! No doubt we'll sleep well tonight.

I get a headache when my ears are too cold, how can you be out without a hat or ear muffs or something?

I've never been a fan of hats ... I have lots of hair so I stay warm.

Gord is addicted to hats!
