Shilly Shally Cabin
Today was a real Ottawa winter day...minus 20 C, deep blue sky and sunny. The snow was squeeky and I needed mittens over my gloves. I wasn't the first past Shilly Shally cabin, but I did get to light the fire.
This is easily the smallest cabin in the park, but the best for birds. I saw a downey woodpecker on the way in and there were two flickers at the feeder. The trail in tunnels through a hemlock grove which is one of my favourite places on the planet.
