Frigid temps and almost daily snowfall just mean it's January in the Northland. Bemidjians didn't let the cold deter them one bit from getting outside to enjoy all that winter has to offer. Whether it was skating on the ice, skiing on the slopes or blowing bubbles in the snow, Pioneer photographers Jillian Gandsey, Madelyn Haasken and Annalise Braught were there to capture it all.
