"This photo was taken on New Year's Eve 2010 while on a three night snowshoe trip in Northern Saskatchewan.  Seven of us pulled our gear on sleds across MacKay Lake on a very cold, windy day.  The rest of the weekend was clear, cold and calm with temperatures dipping down to -32 C(-25 F) at night.

The burning vertical log in the center of the photo is a jack pine candle that was given to us by some dog sledders in the area. It provided some much needed warmth and light on this cold New Year's Eve.  

The boreal forest is amazing any time of year but in the winter it becomes a wonderland!"

Gear List:

Tent - Porcupine Canvas Wall Tent

Hotel Prius

Compact car camping means you can still sleep comfortably along with the gear you actually need, all while taking advantage of the great mileage to get to the best campspots around.

Twin Lakes Night Sky

These campers learned a valuable lesson in the San Isabel National Forest: always have the camera ready due to Mother Nature’s unpredictability.

The Big Rocks

A little bit of research went a long way in helping secure this campspot at a rock climbers paradise in the Alabama Hills.
