The frame I picked to highlight this frosty photograph is called "travel stop sign!"
How fitting this is these days!
Soon I should be "Springing in Spain!" Friday's notification stated "
Springing in Spain" cancelled!
Instead I now still "winter in the west" and I will be springing here too. Yes, it is still winter and we were walloped with a wacky weather front. I love winter and sometimes I believe "I am winter". I left home at first light and headed to Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park to hike for a planned 10 kms under sunshine yet with a frigid temperature of -25C with a windchill of -31C.
No one had been on the trails I took since the new snowfall.
I spiked along in the snow which covered a sheet of ice in sections.

The ice is wrapped around the trunks of the trees.
This is how cold it was this morning!
To capture a photo like this it was necessary to get down and be one with the ground.
