Nature around Leduc
“The weather outside may be cold, but the snow in the ditches around Leduc is deep and perfect for snowshoeing. The cold temperatures also create an opportunity to explore a side of nature that is Canadian to the core.”

Sunshine Skating in Leduc
“Learning to skate with Daddy at Telford Lake.”

Not Minding the Cold in Leduc County
“Nothing like a frosty December snowshoe with your pup to get you in the mindset of colder days. Toby and I will take any time to get outside, even -30 and I love the fact that he is up for any adventure in any weather with me. There are so many places to explore, things to see and, for him, things to smell that staying inside is just not an option. This day, was a tad windy and chilly but in the trees you’d never know, and chasing a dog, how could you be cold – you can’t. Here’s to more outdoor pup adventures!”

Finding the Birds Near Devon
“So many happy chickadees, even in -41C at Clifford E. Lee Nature Sanctuary.”

Nordic Skiing near Devon
“Set ski tracks and snowshoe trails in Bunchberry in great shape…BUT…very cold weather skiing is NOT for the inexperienced. Instead, as temps get warmer and nearer to -20C over the next few days, try it out and learn. ring a friend. Stay within 1 km of trailhead until you learn what works and what stays too cold. Great stories, though! Enjoy our gorgeous winter forest and trails, with a big dose of careful planning.”
> Michael Sullivan (via Devon Nordic Ski Club)
