Winter Walking in the Bog

Winter is my favourite time of year for walking in the Bog near our house. I feel lucky to live so close to the Sifton Bog which is one of the most southerly acidic bogs in Canada. From our house to the pond at the end of the boardwalk and back takes about 55 minutes. It's a perfect distance for me and our little dog. We can either take the trails through the bog or walk around on the sidewalk.

We often take the sidewalk to avoid the mud. In the winter when the ground freezes or when it snows, we love to hike the trails. The trees shelter us from the wind and the mud is either frozen or covered.

It finally snowed, so we thoroughly enjoyed our walk in the Bog New Year's Day. It was cold, sunny and clear - my favourite kind of winter day. The Bog looked so bright and cheery under a layer of fresh snow and ice.

I love living near this special place. Winter Walking in the Bog is the best.
