Summer Scents

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?

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.
