Countless kids have played pond hockey in their youth and for some, the Pond Hockey Championships allow them to return to their roots. Teams converge to participate in several round robin matches on the multiple rinks. The tournament personifies the spirit of hockey and epitomizes the outdoor lifestyle and community spirit of many locals.

I am fascinated with the number of variations and formations of icefalls that grace the sides of the roadside rock cuts. This scene captured my attention with its lone, frosted tree etched against the azure sky, standing tall against all odds in its struggle for survival in this harsh environment.

Armed with his first starter digital camera that he received as a Christmas gift, my youngest son, Stirling, accompanied me on a trip to Arrowhead Provincial Park. It was a beautiful sunny day and we spent the afternoon exploring the trails, impressed with several works of art sculpted in snow and ice, on exhibit in Nature's gallery.
