Fresh snowfall hike on the Blue Mountain Wilderness trails

As soon as I saw the fresh snowfall in the early morning hours, I quickly packed up my gear and run out the door to catch the sunrise.

I get such a charge hiking in freshly fallen snow.  There is a special stillness in the air that is very unique to a fresh snowfall.

All you can hear is your footsteps and the snow falling from the trees as the sun begins to rise.

The Blue Mountain Wilderness Trails are my goto place to explore our natural world.  

Some much amazing accessible wilderness is found all within the city limits of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Beautiful trails through quiet forest, along lakes and stunning look-offs.

So the next pretty winter morning get outside and grab your winter coat, a pairs snowshoes and of course your camera.
