Cattails – Eastern lakeshore

Eastern Lakeshore - Cattails
Eastern Lakeshore – Cattails

A day or two after Christmas 2012, my brother and I got our families outside snowshoeing at Chickahoo Lake. In fresh air, our group got themselves tromping around the lake; I did so with my camera finding these cattails along the eastern lakeshore.

    Beautiful photo! I’ve always wanted to try snowshoeing. And I love that quote.

    1. You have me curious about your locale and I’ve had a look to find that you are California-based; around Christmas in Edmonton, you’re most times able to find snow. The snow shoes were light-weight aluminum and kids and adults were able to get around on them famously. You have me recall Louis Riel who walked a few hundred miles two centuries ago with snow shoes on backwards to elude the Northwest Mounted Police (they would become Canada’s RCMP).

      You’ll have to get in some snow with these incredibly small bits of transportation gear. Take care, 🙂

    1. I like its tone, too … something that conveys something about winter. 🙂
