Back to the River

OK, we took a little break from the Red River pictures to go down memory lane with the dogs waiting at the Rainbow Bridge for me.   Now, its back to our walks along the constantly changing Red River.

Freeze Up Continues

Today I just have more pictures of the Red River as it is freezing up.  Now, for the next couple of day, the forecast indicates above zero temperatures, so I’m not sure what is going to happen.  With temperatures of +7C & +8C, I doubt if the river will break up again, but the snow… Continue reading Freeze Up Continues
