Come for a little stroll along one of my usual dog walking haunts.
and hoof prints - the only clue that the deer take control of this landscape of an evening, once all the pesky dog-walkers and their four-legged friends have vacated their home territory.
Narrow paths are carved through the drifting snow by determined pedestrians.
Long winter shadows, even though it is just after midday and the sun is at it's highest point for today.
How is it that my husband transforms into tall, skinny stick man, but I remain short and dumpy - where are my tall, skinny winter-shadow legs?
Interesting scents that must be investigated....
... and with noses buried and fluffy bums in the air, we must investigate some more.
The golf course lake is mostly frozen over and covered in a smooth blanket of snow. Inviting but dangerous.
And this is the view over the river valley, and the town of Cochrane, looking towards those mountains.
And despite the clear skies, there is little warmth to the day and the blues look weak and watery.
But at least we can actually see the sky today - so I am happy!
My World Tuesday - Have a super week.
