Kensington Metro Park – Winter Snow Pictures

Kensington Metro Park is part of the Huron-Clinton Metroparks. Let me tell you, its AWESOME! Even on a snowy day its so much fun with lots to do.

Kensington has some killer slopes for sledding. When we were there some 5 kids piled on 1 sled and zipped down the hill. It was hilarious.

The Picnic areas were abandoned obviously, as well as the farm house area.

The best part was trying to figure out where the land ended and the frozen lake began. The lakes were just like vast sparkling fields of white.

The picture below was taken from standing on the lake. Its a pic of where boats usually tie up in the summer.

I loved how some parts of the lake were cleared off for some friendly hockey games.

Every summer we enjoy the nature reserve area in Kensington. You can usually see ospries, cranes and many other beautiful birds. None of our usual animal friends were around, but that didn’t prevent us from enjoying a stroll. It has its own special beauty in the winter. Especially in its quiet solitude.

Kensington is truly one of my favorite things about Michigan. Its so picturesque year round.

It was gloomy all day, but the sun started peeking out towards the end of our visit, casting beautiful yellows, oranges and pink hues over the grey skies.
