Last week I went to Whitehorse, YT to visit a friend. It was my second time visiting, but last time I was there during the summer when it was warm. This time ’round the temperatures stayed around -30ºC to -40ºC 🥶 So we tried to do activities that would keep us warm.

Though we did go out on a few outdoor adventures. On this small trail near where we were staying, we hiked through what seemed like a never-ending winter wonderland forest.

Obviously the best indoor activity to stay warm is to spend some time playing with molten glass in 2000ºF furnaces! So we went to an artist’s workshop called Lumel Studios — where instructors will guide you through the creation of some of their beginner-level glass blowing projects.

Jessica and I chose to make color-coordinated stemless wine glasses.

Here’s a few photos of me doing things

Here is the final product! Jessica made the one on the right, and I made the one on the left. I think they turned out really well, and I’m excited that I had the opportunity to try glass blowing.
