Winter Wonderland









Looking out from the porch of the Jumbo Pass Cabin in the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy Provincial Park in southeastern British Columbia which has 500,000 acres of pristine wilderness.

I love when it is a lot of snow outside, but unfortunately lately I haven't seen a lot of snow.

Arija said...

Beautiful snowscape. Looks like someone has already shovelled the way clear.

RuneE said...

Some more snow than we have at the moment - which is close to zero. Beautiful.

Travis Erwin said...

Stunning.

Charles Gramlich said...

Now that's some serious snow.

Barbara Martin said...

Gary, as to your comment in previous post, this was partially posted for those bloggers who are commenting about the small amounts they have received.

Toronto, as yet, has received very little, and is now experiencing rain and mild temperatures. I prefer winter as it is meant to be: cold with deep snow as is reflected in the photo.

Dark Wolf, I whole heartedly agree.

Barbara Martin said...

Fran├žois, this cabin is in a remote area of the park where the access is difficult, especially in winter.

Maria, warming yourself before the fire and sipping hot tea.

Arija, in mountain cabins the doors swing inwards to facilitate being able to dig oneself out.

RuneE, Travis and Charles: I love deep snow and beautiful landscapes.

What a life you live.

Cloudia said...

A palate cleanser for my mind! Thank you, Barbara. Aloha-

David Cranmer said...

Flawless beauty for sure. My wife and I grew up in snow covered NY and we just said today how we don't miss it that much. It looks nice in pics though. :)

Barbara Martin said...

Willow, it is indeed.

Patti, my life is not mundane but often full of challenges.

Barbara Martin said...

Cloudia, temperature change often does that.

David, a benefit of deep freeze temperatures is flu bugs cannot survive.

I'm no fan of sn*w, of course, but this is a wonderful photo. :)
