Abby and Keeper took a walk around Mt. Black Prince Cirque in Kananaskis Country, Alberta today . . . . .
Below, stopping to do some sniffing . . . .
Below, this is what Abby saw . . . . the sun at this time of year isn't high enough, I think, to come into this place. Followers of Abby and Keeper's adventures might remember a trip here in August where the snows of winter were still hanging on.
Below, on the descent, Keeper turns for a look-see, drawing Abby back.
Later in the day, back home, Abby patrols her fenceline in some nicely warm weather. The cold snap which broke yesterday, after starting sub-zero on Dec. 19, was apparently the longest since 1996, before Abby was born.
And later, later, in the warmth of a waning afternoon, Abby and Keeper sleep of the remnants of the day.
Below, the previous weekend, a blustery end to a walk along Stoney Trail, near Nakiska in K-Country.
Below, the weekend, weekend before, before that . . . . some ridge walking in our favourite, deserted place, Abby leading, Keeper picking up the trail.
Below, climbing, climbing . . . . . Abby and I walked up the opposite mountain last Fall.
Below, Keeper tilts her head to listen at a strange sound . . . . . . lots of ridge walking far off into the distance.
Below, Abby ignores the prairie in the distance . . . .
Below, Christmas Day, walking a road closed for the winter west of Turner Valley.
Hope everyone had a great holiday season.
