Here are a few pics from this great day before I pack up and head back to Terrace Bay.
Crazy icy roads on the TC near Thunder Bay. The highway was closed here last night and closed about 500 m up the road today again for accidents.
Gorgeous skiing at Kamview Nordic today in Thunder Bay.
Kamview Nordic is such a pretty place to ski.
Crossing the bridge back into Thunder Bay after gassing up!
Making the best of the overripe bananas after the holidays.
Very healthful banana-wild blueberry-walnut-flax-wheat germ muffins.
Less healthful mincemeat tarts.
A female pine grosbeak waiting for her turn at the feeder.
A timid male pine grosbeak - the females drive them away from the feeders.
A couple of pumpkin pies to get us through the week.

Ever since I moved to Thunder Bay I have been fascinated by the patterns of the snow on the balsam trees. It creates such an interesting effect on the landscape.
Sadly, the "partridge in a beer tree" needs to come down soon. January 1 was a cold, windy day on the lake.
One of hundreds of chickadees that spend winter at our feeders.
Working hard on the rink. It has not been a good year for making ice.
From the lake.
Our new feeder!
A New Years tradition at the lake.
I am NOT going for a run!
Lots of big plans for lots and lots of skiing this winter.
This is me on January 1, 2011 - full of hope for the new year.
