This Looks More Like Spring

I haven’t been for a walk at Fort Whyte Alive for awhile.  Near the end of winter and into early spring, I have found the walkways to be icy & slippery, so I wasn’t sure if I would stay to walk much or not – but it was a nice morning, so I headed there.… Continue reading This Looks More Like Spring

Welcome Back Winter (NOT)

Most of us were enjoying our early spring as the snow was very slowly melting and disappearing from the roads and being splashed onto our cars.  Yes, it was messy, but essential to getting rid of the snow and starting to see the ground again.

Back to Fort Whyte Alive
