River View Trail

All photos taken on April 13, 2022.

Each week, when we drive to and from Bunchberry/Tucker’s, I have been eying this spot on the North Saskatchewan River. Prospector’s Point is a small recreation area and trail located on the North bank of the river across from the town of Devon. While I can find no evidence, it would seem that the bend in the river made it a good place to pan for gold. Indeed on this day, a couple of young fellers were down below doing that very thing.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. That is an unusually large number of stairs outside of a big urban area. Stair runners is one reason we gave up hiking in the city during Covid. The City banned repetitive exercise (stair running) during Covid but people did not care. We called them huffers and puffers. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan


  1. That’s a lot of stairs, Allan, but at least they are in good condition! I love the river views – they sure are beautiful in any season. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. The stairs were almost brand new. I think they completed the work during the early days of Covid. It as great having a new trail to explore. Thanks for reading Aiva. Allan
