Save Place
Montreal, QC, Canada
This was the first year for the Snow Village and it was amazing. I thought it would be a few igloo looking structures where people would sleep for one night to tell their friends. Boy was I wrong, It was made up of many, many different snow...
Save Place
El Calafate, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina
Years ago while living in Buenos Aires, I decided to take my first trip alone, to the edge of Argentina, down in Patagonia. Running along the Chile-Argentina border, Perito Moreno is one of three Patagonian glaciers that is not retreating. It...
Save Place
Mount Pilatus, 6010 Alpnach, Switzerland
The view from our gondola ride up to the top of the beautiful Mt Pilatus. Obviously, it was freezing and although the sun seems to be almost completely hidden by fog here, once up the mountain is was blindingly bright!

Save Place
4200 Park Rd, Wausau, WI 54401, USA
A geological dinosaur (it is one of the oldest formations in the world and a billion years old), Rib Mountain State Park is Narnia-like and a great place to snow shoe and hike. There are long, winding trails with fresh powder during the winter,...
Save Place
Nine Mile Forest, Rib Mountain, WI 54401, USA
The sky couldn't have been bluer, and fresh powder was everywhere, shining like crystals. My first trip snowshoeing was a bit ethereal, a bit out of a book like Narnia. The Nine Mile Forest is nothing short of a magical place, for both cross...
