Snow


November 23, 2015. 
The first snow fall in Gaspe.
There is always something magical
about the first snow fall.
I went for a ride
with my brother Bruce
and sister Carol
to the family camp.
We took Day's Lane (Rte. Day) and
drove approx. 8km (5 miles) north
into the woods.
heavy snow falling...

The secondary road was rough with a lot of slush


 After opening the gate, we continue driving in.
Bruce gets out to remove a small tree that fell on the road.
The road ahead.
The trees were sagging with heavy snow.
My brother has a 4wheel drive truck,
He reassured us that we wouldn't get stuck.

This road is not open in the Winter,
The camp is accessible by snow shoes or skidoos.

 Bruce shows us one of the trees he decorated


I took a lot of close up pics -

 A winter wonderland
 "silence is golden"
 peacefulness and
 clean fresh air 

 We headed back. ..A small tree had fallen on the road
 A farm on the way....
Farmers place these hay bales to keep hunter's vehicles out.


We really enjoyed this trip in the woods.

Wishing all my American friends
A Happy Thanksgiving.
