After talking, writing and drawing
Images inspired by a story
About a snowy day,
It was time to get out
And experience the snowy landscape

Strange to have so little snow
So close to Christmas.
So why don't we make our own snow
Using cattail seeds?

The frozen surface water
Makes for the perfect ice rink.

Standing at the outflow
To Elizabeth Lake
Is a great place for quiet reflection!

A walk on frozen Elizabeth Lake
On a cool morning
Is a new experience
For many of us.
But making snow angels
Is always fun
Particularly in deep snow,
Before walking through the woods
Back to school.

The Outdoor Club's first outing
To Elizabeth Lake,
Our first opportunity
To try out snowshoes.
It didn't take us long
To master them.

We discovered some exoskeletons
Of dragonflies
Hidden in the upturned roots
Of dead shrubs.

We even got to examine
The contents of a bird box,
Containing a tree swallow nest.

A short walk on a Friday afternoon
Was meant to be a Shadow Walk.
Our Sun Dance brought out the Sun
For a short time,
But the cloudy sky
Was too much for it to penetrate.
Never mind ...
There's always another day!!

An interesting afternoon to explore Elizabeth Lake
With temperatures hovering just below zero.
Click on image to download
Out on the ice several waterboatmen are spotted
Trapped in the ice
By a frozen gas hole.
Click on image to download
Some backswimmers appear frozen in the ice
Until one moves ....
Ever so slowly....
These aquatic insects have natural antifreeze
Which enables them to survive cold temperatures.

Close to shore a mysterious two-winged insect
Walks slowly and cautiously over the ice.
