Insect Armada

All photos taken on August 2, 2022 during our walk in Tucker’s Field and Bunchberry Meadows. No matter which Google URL you believe, there is no denying that humans are vastly outnumbered by insects on this planet. Conservative estimates say there are 200 million insects for each human. Sorry, if this just made you feelContinue reading “Insect Armada”

Freshly Washed

All photos taken on August 2, 2022 during our walk in Tucker’s Field and Bunchberry Meadows. Planning for our weekly forest walk was a bit complicated by the forecast, which continually predicted rain and then did not deliver it. The cooler temperatures were what we were looking for and so we set off to seeContinue reading “Freshly Washed”

The “F” Word

All photos taken on August 2, 2022, during our walk in Tucker’s Field and Bunchberry Meadows. August 2 already and it has been decidedly cooler of late. But, not to worry, there is still plenty of summer left, right? Right? Our walk this date shows perhaps the “F” Word is closer than we think. ToContinue reading “The “F” Word”

Wildflower Bouquet

All photos taken on July 26, 2022, during our walk in Bunchberry Meadows. Each time we walk here in late spring and summer, the wildflowers blow us away. Today was no exception. In our two week absence, there was a changing of the guard. Marsh Marigolds were long gone and Common Fleabane flowers were thickContinue reading “Wildflower Bouquet”

I hate to pass the Buck, but I could use a little Doe. Bee still, Little Butterfly!

All photos taken on July 26, 2022 on our Bunchberry Meadows hike. I know I am clutching at straws with my rather lengthy, silly title, but since we switched our walk time to an hour earlier, we have been spotting more wildlife. Hmmmm. Who knew.

Hoping for a Breeze and Some Shade

All photos taken on July 26, 2022. We skipped our weekly walk at Bunchberry Meadows last week. The bug jackets are fairly hot and sweating while beating off mosquitoes was not our idea of fun. But, today promised to be dry and cooler, so we got out early to do a morning walk of 8Continue reading “Hoping for a Breeze and Some Shade”

Walk on the Wild Side

All photos taken on July 11, 2022. This was our 50th walk in Bunchberry since February 18, 2021. How can we walk so often in one place without getting bored? The short answer is 4 distinct seasons and the ability to appreciate the little differences from each walk. Also, maybe we don’t get out much.Continue reading “Walk on the Wild Side”

Itching for a Walk in the Forest

All photos taken on July 4, 2022. It has been a very rainy couple of weeks. Rather than risk worse weather later in the week, we changed our original afternoon walk plan to a morning walk in Bunchberry. The weather was cloudy, but mild, so off we went.

Lazy Sunday….

All photos taken on July 3, 2022. ….was what today was not. After breakfast, we set off for a walk to the North side of our city, basically on the edge of the country. It was a cool morning, but we soon warmed up, as we walked. The walk was short, only 3.5 km. asContinue reading “Lazy Sunday….”

Walk Among the Roses

All photos taken on June 27, 2022, during our walk along the North Saskatchewan River near Devon. When we chose this trail, we were worried about not seeing as many wildflowers along this hike. But, if anything, there were more flowers, especially Alberta wild roses than at Bunchberry and Tucker’s. To continue reading, please clickContinue reading “Walk Among the Roses”
