In Nova Scotia, Canada, we get snow. Where we live on the South Shore, close to the Atlantic, the snow is usually heavy with moisture. The “dump” is often followed by rain, which turns into ice when the temperature drops - which might later melt (or not) - and the cycle repeats itself. So if we want to snow shoe it can be futile to set a future date or “wait until the weekend” - it’s a matter of get out and enjoy it while you can. I’ve been out three consecutive days with another trek planned for tomorrow. Great Fun!

I celebrated our ‘Nova Scotia heritage day’ February 20th with a snow shoeing group on a trail new to me. I was told that in warmer weather there is a beautiful little waterfall up to the left of the open water of this Little Brook . Viewing that is a lure to be back in summer with hiking poles and shoes, to discover more of this River Ridge Common - close to New Germany, Nova Scotia. Canada.
Lovely Sunday afternoon trek with my husband @hammerhead (favourite hiking companion). Plus 5 degrees Celsius weather, with some full sun to begin, ending with an overcast sky. Trekkers had gone ahead of us, making for an easier hike - yet we still stripped off layers before summiting the short climb.
