Temperatures dipped down below the freezing mark. Thick sheets of ice and snow covered the lakes and land for miles around. Most wildlife are hidden in dens or have gone to warmer climates for the winter. But what seems like a good idea to stay indoors and shun outside activity was to the contrary for all attending the 2013 Winter Festival at High Point State Park in Sussex County on Jan. 26.

There was a flurry of activity on the park grounds. Visitors from the tri-state area enjoyed cross country skiing, hiking and ice fishing. Friends of High Point State Park, a non-profit organization sponsored the free Winter Festival and organizes other events throughout the year.
