Our log cabin is located in northern Michigan. We get a lot of snow. And we make the most of the winter. There are so many winter activities to explore! And our family is always looking for new ideas.
Ice fishing definitely takes a hearty soul. I like watching the ice fisherman on our lake use their auger tool to drill a hole in the lake and set up their ice shanties. My husband typically loves to wade in the river and fly fish but is intrigued by ice fishing. He is going to give it a shot in a few weeks. Brrr!!
Snowshoeing has become one of our favorite winter activities. We've gone snowshoeing on local nature trails, at state parks and even our lake. It's great exercise and we like being able to walk through the deeper snow.
Recently I crossed off a buck list item by going dog sledding at one of our local ski resorts. If you ever have a chance to go, I highly recommend it! Watching the dogs pure joy at running across the snow made me happy as well.
Other activities on our list include winter bonfires, wildlife watching, skiing and local city festivals. I truly believe winter is what you make it! I'd love to hear about your winter activities below.
Cheers to winter!
