The second photo is of Pasqua Lake which is located about 60km northeast of the city limits. This is beautiful area is what we refer to as Cottage Country. Here is a shot from last week where people are cleaning snow off the frozen lake in order to make a skating rink. Lots of fun if your dressed for the cold weather. To see another pic of the skating rink on the lake, check my post below from January 3rd.
