Took this shot on February 27, 2021. Norbury Lake in East Kootenay, British Columbia. Taken with iPhone XR, no filter. Doing a tour north and east of Cranbrook. The wall of mountains is stunning. The spot on the ice is someone ice fishing.
It has been a beautiful winter. Took this last weekend, the stillness of the mostly frozen river and the coating of white snow is so peaceful. Makes one forget the recent realities of the world.
Our Sunday stroll took us along the Moyie River near Cranbrook, BC in Canada. We followed it for about 2 miles through the bush. The river is mostly frozen, soon we’ll be able to ski it, just needs a bit more cold and some snow. To get here we go under the highway and across the tracks. After a few minutes, all you can hear is yourself breathing and the sound of your footsteps. All we saw fro wildlife on this hike was a squirrel running across the river. Luckily, nothing was chasing it. Standard equipment out here is bear spray, you never know. The bears re sleeping, but there is the odd cougar, and even some wolves in the vicinity. Pretty rare to see one. Lots of elk and deer as well. Next time out, I must remember to bring our GoPro and hook it up to my chest. It is gorgeous out there.
First the picture, overlooking Monroe Lake.Now the plug. Having basically abandoning my blogging, with periodic stabs at reviving my interest, I am now committing to re-learning the techniques. Many changes since my last consistent typing. As I work on that, I am posting on a regular basis on my music site, https://therealcanadianmusicblog.com/ So far so good, have a ton of photos, videos and ideas for both and hope to get back into a regular schedule.
The view out our back door a few days ago.
