Only a few seasonal changes to report from Cobalt. (Or should I say Coleman Township? More on that in a moment.) The snowbanks are somewhat higher, and I’ve noticed the sun sets in a different location. Now that there’s more snow, and more importantly, now that I’ve recovered from the flu, I’ve been able to get out and about and explore some new winter hikes around the area.
Technically speaking, that “area” is Coleman Township and it completely envelops the Town of Cobalt. Most of the silver mines brought into production from 1904 to the mid-1980’s are in Coleman. I pay property taxes to the Township.
But when I describe where I live, I say “Cobalt” as that is the more familiar location. Well, familiar to those who know Northern Ontario, or mines and minerals. Many of my friends thought I meant Cobourg when I told them where I was moving.
It doesn’t really matter.
Except, yes it does, to some.
OK, now that I’ve addressed that little technicality, allow me to share with you the photos of both the town and the township for the month of February!
