In the winter it's one of the few spots open near Abraham Lake. If you're camping in temps below 0˚F you'll likely be the only one.

Student Nurse from Alberta, Canada, a beautiful place that I am so fortunate to live in. Experiencing the outdoors close to home as well as abroad has been extremely rewarding, and I'm excited to share the highlights so far!
