Right after Christmas, I purchased a new coat during the boxing day sales. It is much warmer than anything I have had before and would come in handy while volunteering at the zoo and walking at Fort Whyte Alive. The weather was warmer than usual during this time, so I didn’t wear it until today when I had the time to get out to Fort Whyte Alive.
The temperature was -13C with a wind chill value of -19 – so still not the extreme cold that I would need this coat for, but cold enough to see how it was.
I took a few pictures of the native fish & turtles inside the 2nd building, but only two actually turned out well enough to show. The first are Painted Turtles and I believe the fish are Perch.
Just outside the door were 4 White-tail Deer. They stopped to pose for photos.
The paths were fairly good for walking, especially on the side where the Bison are located and I snapped a few pictures on my walk.
I was more than warm enough in my new coat.
