Go to Provincial Parks in winter? That’s crazy

This past winter and early spring I visited and hiked several parks in the Halifax area. This was an exercise in pursuing goals but gave me the pleasure of visiting the parks and seeing the beauty a different season will reveal. It started out in Long Lake with a very icy walk. From there it continued through many parks enjoying snowy scenes and windswept frozen vistas. Almost as striking and the scenery was the lack of people using our parks. Week after week I saw no one or a few people. I began to think I was crazy out trudging through the snow but I really had the entire park to myself a lot of days. Now that the heat is on the way up and the amount of people and bugs are returning, who is crazy now 🙂
