on my last day in ottawa,
i decided to go cross-country skiing
(for the first time in 16 years!)
with my parents.
we took the parkway into chelsea,
and ended up skiing through
the most picture-perfect scenery
on the most beautiful winter day:
snowy trees, branches covered and hanging low,
creeks half-frozen, glinting in the sunlight,
and the calmness and serenity
of the gatineau hills,
surrounding us on all sides.
it was like we'd stepped into
a magical winter wonderland!
and it made such an impression
i know i'll remember it
for years to come...
(i'm so glad i thought
to bring my DLSR along!)
