How do I get down there?!!!" Pete struggled for a bit trying to figure out what Ruby was doing

But then he got it . . . . . . but we had to leave to keep ahead of the thunderhead closing in.

End of July

Pete explores the shores of Chain Lake in mid-summer. A favourite walk at any time of the year.

Early January

Ruby enjoys a walk along icy and windswept Barrier Lake

Ruby wants to go out there but the ice was grumbling

Walking along Barrier Lake, mostly clean of snow from the constant wind. The faint lines in the picture are power lines running along the lakeshore.  

New Years Day!!

Pete's view . . . 

Ruby roams . . . . . . by a quirk of atmospherics, the skyscrapers of Calgary, a couple of rectangles just on the horizon, could be seen above Ruby and slightly to the left, even though they're about 100 km in the distance.

Ruby up high

Pete investigates while Ruby keeps watch
