Row Boat

Taken a few days ago,
 before the clouds returned to bring an end to
 our balmy, spring like weather...

...this scene draws my eye every time I pass by..
...The rowboat is full of water but still looks serviceable...

We've had great trail running weather this weekend,
so we ran up to the lookout over Cultus Lake,
where we could still see the
early morning frost
in the shadowy valley below.
Thanks for visiting!

Winter Air

The dykes along the canal
 give a wonderful opportunity for running, biking, and walking
on beautiful winter days...

...and many take advantage of it,
savouring the fresh air and wonderful landscapes. 

Thanks to you all for visiting my blog!

River Trail

We have been having wonderful weather
 for running and walking...
 and other outdoor activities...

...such a bonus for us.
Our Januarys are generally dark and wet.
Here one of our many trails lead us
to the blue reflection of the Vedder River

Winter Colour

Winter colours are predominantly grayish greens and brown.. 

This leaning, old, retired barn is surrounded by blackberries briars,
creating a rather desolate scene.
However, we have cheery, sunny days
forecast for the week ahead!

Rainy Season

Our wet and stormy weather continues...
... you can see the broken limbs
 from last nights storm
on the right shoulder of the road...

This group of trees shows it's bare limbs
 against the mountain backdrop.
Thank you for visiting my blog!

Interesting Complexity

Even though the weather is dark and dreary...
...yet the eye can find
beauty in the unusual...
 and the damp and dripping surroundings...

Our backyard two weeks ago
when we had a few days of snow...

...and this is the same scene
 a few days later,
green again.
Wishing you all a happy New Year!
