Happy Earth Day 2018, everyone! This wonderful planet needs all the help we can give it.

Good luck, SmugMug! You've got your work cut out for you, now that you have taken over the Flickr website, but keeping it as a separate site. Sounds very hopeful, though : ) I have a good many of my photos (same ones as on Flickr) already on the SmugMu…

My daughter and I had a such a great day on 5 September 2017. She had a free day, so we decided to drive north-east of the city and visit the Pioneer Acres Museum. The day started off with seeing three perched Swainson's Hawks, which were a bonus. We h…

This photo was taken on 9 January 2016, when I took part in a Mid-winter Bust-out trip east of the city, led by Terry Korolyk. Eight of us, plus our leader, took part in this day trip - maybe when everyone else saw what the temperature was first thing in…

On 16 August 2017, I had a most enjoyable day out with friends Dorothy, Stephen and Janet. We basically covered a similar area that we had been to, back on 20 February 2017. Everywhere looked different because of the landscape colouring at different tim…

On its way down
This photo was taken in the afternoon of 6 November 2017, when I decided to dash out east of the city again. Most roads were clear of snow, apart from the gravel back roads, so I reckoned I had better make the most of it before the next snowfall. There…

This photo was taken on 2 December 2017. I drove SE of the city to go to the very first Christmas Market held by the Saskatoon Farm, feeling that I should support it. When I arrived in the area, cars were parked so far along the road leading to the Farm…

My intention on 4 October 2017 had been to drive some of the back roads a bit further north of where I have been two or three times before, almost as far as Olds. However, after finding myself on a couple of muddy, slushy, potholed country roads caused b…

Our high temperature today is expected to be PLUS 1C (windchill -8C) with roughly the same for the next four days - and then the snow returns yet again. We have had a few beautifully sunny days and yesterday, 24 February 2018, I made the most of it and w…
