Random Road trip SundayBy
Tito and I decided to take the day, and the cameras, and head out to the Cheltenham Badlands. We made a few silly decisions along the way, (mostly related to the flawed perception that a time change meant a 10 degree difference in the weather and the wardrobe choices that ensued).
It’s basically still the tundra out there, and (I found out the hard way) the snow is about thigh deep (and yes, we have snowshoes, but we left them in the house. We like to keep them warm and dry, you see).
These were digitally processed to a faux cyanotone. It seemed to compliment the day, and the weather. We also spent some time in the nearby Terra Cotta Reserve. Both places were lovely and empty and filled with ample evidence of how widespread the destruction of trees from our Christmas ice storm was.
A great place for hiking, but walking those trails inspired me to take up cross country skiing. A new hobby perhaps?
Beautiful photos. Over here in Holland, we had ‘the winter that never was’. No ice, no skating, no snow, no cold days (though lots of rain – yes, plenty of that). It’s now sunny, 15 degrees and the daffodils are saying hello. Such a contrast. My brother lives in Orono, Ont. and I’ve been hearing from him how incredibly cold it’s been over there.
(ps have now made Claudia gloves 4 times – going down a storm with my friends!)
We’ve just had the hottest summer in a long time over here (Australia) so it boggles my mind to see so much snow!!
