One sunny Friday morning, my friend Vanessa and I made our way out to Rattlesnake point in milton for an adventure that we’ve been planning for a few months now. I’ve never been out this way but I’d often seen so many others go hiking here and wanted to check it out.
….We could not have chosen a colder day to hike…
In spite of a -20 windchill we braced ourselves for the cold with scarves and double layered leggings and hit the trail. When winter began in 2016 I promised myself this would be there year I embrace winter. I missed most of it last year because of my injury and from what I can remember it wasn’t much of a Canadian winter anyways.. (not that this winter is really shaping up to be very Canadian either) I’m so happy I made this decision. Never in a million years did I think I would be the type of person to willingly go outside in such freezing temperatures. But this world is something different when it is blanketed in snow and skies that are clear. The tones are so aesthetic, the air is so clean and crisp, the sound of the ground crunching is so unbelievably pleasing. All of my senses felt heightened and aware.
That morning Vanessa asked if she could snap some photographs of me while we hike because she’s really interested in portrait photography. I can say that this was something that put me far out of my comfort zone but it actually ended up being pretty fun once I got used to being on the other side of the camera.

We finished out hike at Hilton falls and it was incredible. Anyone who knows me knows I’m obsessed with waterfalls. It’s always been on my bucket list to check out a frozen one in the winter. IT. WAS. DOPE.
I’ve always been someone who’s wanted to travel, but I’m working hard to appreciate all parts of the world. This includes the places I already living.
More exploring to come. Happy Super Bowl sunday,
