|View from the lookout|
Yesterday we hopped in the car and headed off to Lethbridge. In less than an hour we were in winter again. Here we are driving through one of the mountain passes.
A little sidetrip to the Creston Wildlife Sanctuary to see what the marshlands had to offer. There were lots of birds singing - especially redwing blackbirds. All over the marsh, we could see the male blackbirds staking out their cat tail stalk and singing to get some attention. I sat down on a bench with this view. I just wanted to sit there all day and listen to the birds sing. Isn't this peaceful?
After negotiating the Crowsnest Pass through the Rockies, we popped out in Alberta. It's like a different country. One of the best things, of course, are the windmills.
There are rows and rows of them in Pincher Creek. A storm was brewing and the sky was very gray - not blue. The sun was still shining on them and I loved how they appeared to glow. The dry grass looked like a beach.
More to come...when I have time.
