Breeze, Wheeze, Trees, Geese, Tease, Unease

All photos taken on April 28, 2022. Our sense of timing for a walk to the lake was a bit off. The paths leading to the lake were busy and the High School Outdoor Ed. class were receiving canoe instructions. We were surprised the school instructors was not more cognizant that it was water birdContinue reading “Breeze, Wheeze, Trees, Geese, Tease, Unease”

Connecting the Dots

All photos taken on April 28, 2022. With Bunchberry Meadows still closed and the newness of Prospectors Point, we opted to do a “completer” walk today. Our English friend calls this “Connecting the Dots” or “Closing the Loop”. This walk was not quite a loop, but there were some dots at the beginning. To continueContinue reading “Connecting the Dots”

Saving Steps

All photos taken April 21, 2022. We enjoyed the walk from Prospector’s Point, through the Imrie Property and along River View so much last week, we decided to do it again this week, but skip the 346 steps up and the 346 steps back down at the far East end. It was another stellar day.Continue reading “Saving Steps”

On a Wild Goose Chase

All photos taken on April 20, 2022. It is funny the things you see after a late spring snow storm. We waited until the walks were mostly clear before walking down to the lake. To continue reading, please click here. Alternatively, click here to go to new Blog Site.

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 noContinue reading “River View Trail”

The Imrie Property

All photos taken on April 13, 2022. Mary Imrie was the first female architect in Alberta. During her lifetime, she acquired and maintained various properties in Alberta and British Columbia. This property was donated in 1988 when Mary died. In her will, Mary stipulated that the lands for the public benefit. This piece of propertyContinue reading “The Imrie Property”

Prospectors Point

All photos taken on April 13, 2022. With Bunchberry Meadows closed for 7 weeks and Tucker’s Field still thawing out, we thought we would give this place another look. If the trail petered out at the top of the river bank, we could always walk the Devonian Trail to Tuckers Field. This spot is indicatedContinue reading “Prospectors Point”

Tucker Trek

All photos taken on April 6, 2022. It had been a long time since the November 29/21 Nitpicker incident (see post here) and this was the first time we had returned to hike in Tucker’s Field. We were left with little choice this week, due to the spring closure of Bunchberry Meadows. To continue reading,Continue reading “Tucker Trek”

Battle Stations

All photos taken during our 4.6 km (3 mile) walk to Four Seasons Park and back. The forecast had been calling for rain and a rain/snow mix, starting at 4:00 PM yesterday, but not much of that appeared. However, the promised NW winds gusting to 50 k/h (31 m/h) did appear and had been howlingContinue reading “Battle Stations”
