The nights are long in this small northern town in Canada; the long nights bring days where the sun barely skims the tops of our twig-like trees. The days are cold and will freeze the cells of your body within minutes. You must come prepared for what the land brings, and be ready for extremes.
It has become cold now. The leaves are gone and the snow has turned the pine trees into winter cacti; their bristles frozen and glistening white, like tiny swords ready for a fight. The true battle is not the snow, but the bitter cold. We have a long winter ahead of us and the storms have yet to blow through the mountain pass. Here are some photos to document the winter months.
