Pine Point Rapids, Manitoba and Pinawa Dam, Manitoba

January 21, 2016  •  1 Comment

We did a little day trip to Pine Point Rapids in Whiteshell Provincial Park and the Pinawa Dam. It was a beautiful day! The weather was perfect and unseasonably warm for a Manitoba winter but you will not hear us complaining at all! It was nice not to have to bundle up too much... makes for easier picture taking. Pine Point Rapids is about a 5 km round trip, certainly worth making the hike in. We didn't have too much snow yet so it made the walk a bit easier. During the winter months it is used as a cross country ski trail, which would make for a beautiful day of skiing. There was just the right amount of snow and ice to make for some unique and stunning shots. 

We also did a quick stop at the Pinawa Dam... also a really neat place to stop if you are out that way! The old dam has some really interesting architecture and there was a beautiful layer of frost on the plants and along the edges of the water. Its not a long hike into the dam but there are lots of paths and bridges in the area that make for a beautiful walk!

It was a wonderful day all in all and its always nice to get out into the peace and stillness of nature! Enjoy!
