Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

No, no I don't wanna go out.

First persistant snow (we had the first flurries already on 21st of October).

Indian Wisdoms

On our trip to the Kawarthas we went to Petroglyphs Provincial Park. It has the largest collection of ancient First Nations petroglyphs (rock carvings) in Ontario. The carvings were created in the pre-Columbian era and represent aspects of First Nations mysticism, including shamans, animals, and the Great Spirit. A documentary center tells us about the beliefs and wisdoms of the native people living in this area. Please click here to go to a short collection of these texts.

Excursion to the Kawarthas

Mid of October we had the chance to get a long week-end. Canada was celebrating Thanksgiving. We just headed North to the Kawartha Lakes region and towards Bancroft to admire the beautiful changing of leaves' colours.
