Last week my husband and I decided to break out and get some time on our own. We packed our snow pants to go trekking in the Ganaraska Forest, near Port Hope, Ontario. These days the only time I get out in the snow is to continuously drag a toboggan for my two year old up a little hill near my house in downtown Toronto – so I gladly welcomed a hike in the snow. However, since I am in my fifth month of pregnancy, we both knew it was not going to be a three or four hour hike like it used to be. Trekking in knee high snow the peace and tranquility of the silent forest along the Ganaraska river made me appreciate that nature like this is still here for us. The work we do with the Foundation serves to preserve places in the Greenbelt like the Ganaraska forest so that my daughter can enjoy open spaces with her own family one day too.
Has anyone ventured out in the snowy Greenbelt lately? Or into the less than snowy Greenbelt?
