St. Lawrence river winter outting

This was a day to get off the couch and out to the winter world. We started off from the Minna Anthony Common Nature Center, on Wellesley Island . We walked the eel bay trail to the narrows trail, and from there we took the middle trail back to the nature center. We didn't see much wildlife, but the views were great. We had original planned to snowshoe, but the lack of snow made doing it in boots easy enough. Total distance was about 3 miles, +/-. From there we headed towards Cape Vincent and Tibbetts point (by car). The road is very close to the St. Lawrence river through here, and the views are awesome. It was pretty unusual to see so much open water this time of year. It made for a nice day trip, and ended with a nice supper in Clayton. Links to these places below.
