Île-de-la-Visitation Nature Park
I like exploring Montreal's big parks. This time it was Parc-nature de l'Île-de-la-Visitation. We started out on snowshoes, but no off the path snowshoeing was allowed, so we switched to just walking. The park hugs the shore of Rivière des Prairies on the north side of the island of Montreal. I love the city parks that make you feel far from the city.
The sun was low on the horizon, casting its golden light. The snow crunched beneath our feet. It felt good to be out in the winter air.
It's so easy in winter to hibernate. But when I get out walking, the sun puts a smile on my face and the wintry air refreshes.
