"The Groundhog Was My Favourite" Meadow Lake Provincial Park Off The Beaten Path Tip by Bwana_Brown
Meadow Lake Provincial Park Off The Beaten Path: 3 reviews and 3 photos
I thought that their sculpture of a groundhog emerging from his burrow was the best of the lot! In reality, these otter-sized creatures live from one coast to the other in Canada. They hibernate all through the winter months in their burrows dug in farmers fields, before emerging in late-winter to see what is happening. February 2nd is known as Groundhog Day because it is said that, when these creatures emerge above-ground after their long sleep, they can tell from their shadow whether or not they should go back to sleep - because Winter may not be done with us yet!! In truth, January and February are the peak of Winter in Canada and it would be a foolish Groundhog to wake up that soon!!
