A Fort Whyte Alive Morning Walk

We’ve been having some pretty chilly days lately with temperatures close to -30C and with wind chill values well into the -30’s. This morning it was a balmy -24C with the wind chills still in the -20’s, very little wind and bright sunny skies. So, I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive for a walk. By the time I returned home, it was a balmy -17C with a wind chill value of -22C.

It was a little over a year ago (Dec 15, 2020) when I slipped and fell at Fort Whyte Alive and broke my shoulder. This time the trails were clear of any ice and although I did have the spikes on my shoes that I wear all winter when I walk, I really didn’t need them this time.

I’ll start my photos with the Bald Eagle nest. With no leaves on the trees, it is easy to see the nest now.

My little Toyota has a much smaller gas tank than my old Chev did and I realized on the way home that I should have filled it up before going anywhere. But I had enough to get to a gas station and now it is filled again.
