Grand Beach Provincial Park

  • Went on the ski trails today for a hike and some trail clearing. Beautiful sunny day in this little paradise with a some snow on the ground.

  • Spirit North Festival day today until 3pm. 100+ kids from Nelson House, Beren’s River, Black River and Wanipigow skiing, racing, playing games and having fun!
