Our second December in a pandemic certainly delivered some holiday stressors. However, our top photos for the month prove the the timeliness and beauty of the winter season in the Kawarthas and serve as a reminder to get outside, protect our environment, and de-stress!
Our quintessential Kawartha icons this month include snowy owls (of which there are many this year!) with lots of reds on our cardinals, canoes, cottage chairs, and winter sunsets.
Don’t forget to get outside. And tag us with #kawarthanow when you do.
We share photos from across our readership area, which is the five-county area surrounding Peterborough which includes Peterborough, Northumberland, City of Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton, and Hastings (we sneak in the occasional Algonquin Park picture as well, particularly if it’s by a Kawarthas photographer).
