The Snows of August
 
Around here, I can probably do one of the "Snows of . . ." threads every month.

Walking with Ruby and Pete in Kananaskis Country, Alberta, we find snow out in the open, from last winter . . .

Leading to a nice swim in a snow-fed lake on a very hot day . . .

Pete enjoys an icy stream . . .

A snow patch is nice on the feet for Pete and Ruby. The area on the other mountain in the distance was closed due to a Grizzly feeding on a carcass.

Below, walking with Pete on the shores of Chain Lakes, their favourite place . . . . this is crown grazing land with miles of shoreline for walking.

Beautiful pics, Ric

Those dogs are so lucky to have you as a parent. :lovestruck:

I've always said that the Alberta Rockies are as close to heaven as you can get. :cloud9:
