Some recent adventures . . . .

Been busy and then away for awhile (ran the Big Sur half-marathon in Monterey, California) so not too many adventures for Abby and Keeper lately.

However, some things from the last month.

Below, Keeper leads the pack yesterday at Upper Kanananskis Lake in Alberta. The lake has a thin sheen of ice over half of it and was singing to us in thrumming, whale-like mourning that was varying in pitch as the ice was moving around . . . . then sudden crashes as something along the shoreline would explode.

Plenty of snow as Abby crosses a frozen stream. Abby had to see a specialist last week and its determined she won't need an operation on her shoulder but she does have slowly gathering athritis in elbows, not uncommon for a 9.5 year-old dog. She's aging gracefully it seems and some Metacam before hikes means she won't be stiffening up afterwards.

A gloomy day doesn't mean its a gloomy walk in a place like this.

Below, deceptively frozen, a barren and empty place, Keeper explores at Chain Lakes in southwestern Alberta.

More exploring for Keeper.

And now . . . . . I'm off to a conference in Vancouver for a few days. Very busy the last month.

Keeper on the weekend . . . . it was about minus 20 much of the weekend, hence not much adventuring for Abby & Keeper except for some brief forays into a nearby forest. Not surprisingly, we were the only people there.
