There is something very special about a morning walk during the winter months here in Dawson Creek.
The other day, I bundled up and set out for a walk just as the sun was rising in the east sky. It promised to be yet another bright blue-sky day and I was struck by the beauty and peacefulness that surrounded me.
Have you ever walked through a forest when the hoar frost crystals cover every branch and every needle? When the air is so clear it crackles, sounds carry for miles... and your boots crunch with each step? It's magical isn't it?
I was delighted to meet a cross-country skier who obviously had the same morning inclination to fill up with the fresh crisp Peace Country air. She stopped for a few minutes and told me that Dawson Creek is a wonderful community for cross-country skiing.
"We have miles of groomed trails and a very active ski club." In typical Dawson Creek friendly fashion, she told me her name and invited me to contact her if I would like to try my hand or should I say feet at skiing.
If you happen to come here during the winter, make sure you bring your mittens and be ready to refreshed with a winter wonderland wander... there's lots to do here... winter family fun for all!
For this Mile O Citizen, I just might take up cross-country skiing...
