Canada's Prince Edward Island is known as an idyllic summer getaway, but it's also loaded with cold-weather charm.
Perched above the ocean, the red sandstone cliffs of Prince Edward Islad are swirled with a layer of crisp, white snow. On the shore below, the once frothing surf has turned to chunks of ice. Prince Edward Island—Canada's smallest province—may seem snowbound in the winter, but the chill winds breathe fresh excitement in this scenic spot.
