Sunday Drive

Check Point

Today on a quick trip to the little corner store down the road from our home, Hubby and I decided to take the kids a little deeper into the woods to enjoy the snow and hopefully spot some wildlife :)

I love these old signs. They haven't changed since I was a young girl riding along in the logging trucks up and down the mountainsides with some of the fellows from camp that my dad was friends with :)

Sunday Driving

As we went further the forest got thicker and the snow deeper.

Mountainside

Fog and clouds enclosed the distant mountains as the snow started to fall. You can just make out the larger mountain in the background :)

Wall of Ice

Beautiful sheets of ice encased the sides of the rock faces where water had previously been running but was now frozen solid.

Keta Lake

Our favorite trout fishing lake covered in a layer of ice and snow.

Bones

And unfortunately the only wildlife that we were able to find were these bones from a predators meals. Not exactly what I had in mind when I went searching for deer and cougar *grin*.

Happy Sunday everyone :)

Hugs,
Rosina

You really live in a beautiful part of Vancouver Island...so much forest! The frozen waterfall was beautiful. Do you have any guesses as to what the bones may have been from?? That was such a great find!

I love drives like these, you never really know what your going to see and it's so nice to just hang out with the family :) Though it sounds like you could have done without the animal remains, the frozen waterfalls look stunning!

Thanks everyone :)

Erin you know I really have no idea what they were from :) They were a fair size though so maybe a deer?

All that snow. I would love to see a frozen waterfall like that. My children would have wanted to bring the bones home!
