A week ago, our lake looked like this. We had just had an April snowstorm, and the ice was starting to melt at the edge of the lake.
Now the lake looks like this. The ice has become very slushy, and is at one end of the lake.
My husband decided to take his old boat out and see what the ice was like.
You can see his venture into the ice in this picture.
We have had some freezing rain today, which put some ice on the trees. The birds, including the goldfinches, were busy around our feeders.
Last summer my daughter and I enjoyed some time in the Kananaskis area. Beautiful scenery!
We were able to enjoy a winter sleigh ride the other day. The weather was beautiful, and the countryside was nice and peaceful.
Snow, snow, and more snow! We are certainly getting lots of it. I still think it’s beautiful.
We have had a lot of snow this winter, and I finally went out to try to get some pictures of snowflakes. It’s hard to do with the lens I have, and hard to get them to be sharp. I did like these ones though, and will have to try again, possibly with another lens.
While my daughter and I were in Canmore last summer, we climbed the hill behind the hotel to see the hoodoos. There were only a few, but it was well worth the climb. They do look very different from the ones in the Drumheller area.
Fog in the winter looks very different from the fog we see in the summer. As the weather warms, the snow and ice can bring about a beautiful fog. This morning, I took a walk to see the fog on our lake which hid some of the fishing huts, and simplified the scenery.
I’m still going through photos from our trip to Banff this past summer. When we finished the trip to Mount Norquay, we visited Lake Minnewanka.
This is a very beautiful lake and would be good to revisit. It is 21 km long, so we only saw one very small part. They have boat cruises going out during the summer – this will have to be on our bucket list if/when we visit the area again.
