Winter Hike in Mer Bleu Conservation Area

I'm back in Vancouver again for school, but on my last day in Ottawa I decided to take a hike in the Mer Bleu Conservation Area. The weather was freezing for most of my time back in Ontario (usually with windchills of -20°C to -30°C). Luckily, the weather warmed up slightly for my trip to the bog.

It was beautiful as always, but the cloud formations were especially intriguing.

 Funnily enough, halfway through the hike I realized that there was a noseprint on my camera lens. Chances are it was from my relative's dog who I saw at Christmas. This left a bit of a blur on some of my photos, and explains why some of my photos from Lyon Mountain were also slightly blurry. Oh well, what can you do? This definitely isn't the first time I haven't realized dog snot was on my camera lens, and it probably won't be the last!

While Ontario was very cold, being back in rainy Vancouver makes me miss the dry, powdery snow. It's a very cold year for most of Canada, so I hope all of my friends and family are keeping warm. I, on the other hand, will attempt to keep dry!
