I looked forward to this morning since yesterday morning. For this round of two hours being "out & about" I picked Ralph Klein Park. This city park remains open except for the building, playground and washrooms. Once again, I got an early start to avoid the anxiousness of being where there is potential to be a bunch of others. When I pulled into the parking lot, a coyote with a limp leg crossed the field on the other side of the lot. For the two hours here that was the only physical distancing from that I had to be concerned about.
The lights along the pathway were still on as I began walking.

I never did see it again.
This is the building that is closed. It is surrounded by a pond which is frozen and snow covered.
The building is closed but the stairs and platforms are open to obtain great views from.

There were many large beautiful murals. This was my favourite.
It is painted on the side of a storage container almost the size of a train car.
Here I am tapping into those pillars of strength!
a bullrush, lots of them here
I left the trial and ascended the stairs to the top platform around the building.
This is just one of the sights on the platform.
This was my route today with some over lapping. I realized when I was leaving the Park and looking at this, there were other trails that may have been open that I could have walked along. I will keep that in mind for my next visit.
Your winter lasts such a long time, but you certainly know how to make the most of it, especcially in retirement.ReplyDelete
