On Saturday, we rented a Car2Go with Tyler, and drove to Hamilton to meet our friends for a hike. Nic and I had been to Webster’s Falls in Dundas a couple summers ago, so it was cool to see it in the winter.

We ended up parking at the base of the escarpment, so we climbed up to the main set of falls. It got pretty treacherous with lots of ice, so we found ourselves scrambling up the hills, grabbing onto trees and bushes so we wouldn’t fall off the cliff into the river.

Although it’s very grey in the pictures, it was still pretty bright out, and we were all warm enough.

It was so cool to see the falls in this way: the water was still rushing, but where normally there is spray of water, it had frozen into place in huge lumps.
