This year could be a record year for me for the number of Urban Hikes I complete and the number of kilometres I cover on the urban paths and trails. Today I headed back to Carburn Park and instead of hiking around that area, I immediately aimed in the direction of Fish Creek Park to cover a little more ground there. We were in for a beautiful day so I went as usual for an early start. I knew later everyone and his dog and bike would be on this pathway system.

then glancing westward
I veered off the paved path in favour of being on the dirt trails as much as possible.
It gets you closer to the river and this is what I saw.
A beaver! Oh Canada!
I was here a couple of weeks ago and the ground was covered in ice and snow.
It's looking like spring to me today.
It was a frosty morning and frostier in Fish Creek Park than it was in Carburn Park.
frost + reflection + browns = spring

This is the route I covered today which amounted to 13kms.
