A Prairie Scene

 
A long, straight stretch of prairie road
 on a beautiful, cold, winter day
with the mid afternoon sun low on the horizon. 
The coldest day we experienced on our Alberta visit
was a bone chilling -37C, with a wind chill of -47C.

Magical Ice Garden

 
I'm posting some photos my daughter took
on Monday 
of my magical ice covered garden...

 
...the blueberry plants, the Sedums...

 
...and Japanese Maple.

Early Morning Trail Run



 
Saturday morning trail run...
...enjoying the view of Cultus Lake down below
in the low valley fog....

 
...traipsing across a 100ft log...

 
...a tree fallen many years ago...

 
...and enjoying the view
which the clear cuts endow us with...

 
...adding welcome light to the dark forest
high up on Vedder Mountain.
 
Thank you for visiting my blog today!  :  )

Sunshine!

 
Last week's beautiful weather
made for a beautiful drive...

 
...a sunny day is such a delight
during our damp and moisture laden winters.

Highlighted With Snow

 
The surrounding mountains looked glorious...

 
...after a timely snowfall last week...

 
...highlighting their craggy features.
 
Thank you for visiting! :  )

Warm and Cold

 
Blustery warm winds,
 whipped the flags from the southwest on Thursday...
...straight from Hawaii...

 
...while today the freezing artic outflow winds
whip the flags from the north east,
frigid air straight from the Yukon.
Keep warm everyone!
