The ranch lands in the foothills of the Rockies have been repeatedly Chinook-scoured – you won’t find much snow out here right now! I took these photos on January 30, just east of Chain Lakes, where my hubby, brother, and I had spent a few hours ice fishing.
*If you’re interested, here’s the Cowboy Trail route information. It’s a very scenic (if a bit meandering) 700 kilometer drive partway across the province. We’ve traveled it on numerous occasions, albeit not the whole thing all at once.
Wow, not snowy!
It’s astonishingly warm and dry this winter! Not sure how good that will be for the farmers and gardeners come spring….
Love the country side but love the cows more. 🙂 I’ve always wanted a cow. Great photos
I love cows, too – they’re such beautiful animals. 🙂
Hope you’re having a wonderful week!
You guys have had a lot of mild weather this year! I’m originally from saskatchewan but my parents are retired in Red Deer now:)
It has definitely been a really warm winter – apparently we’re looking at a high temperature of +17 degrees this coming Wednesday! Crazy!
You go ice fishing?! I’ve always been a little mystified about the appeal of that. We watched some guys SCURRYING off the lake in front of our house last week–the ice was breaking up under their feet, I guess!
We don’t go very often…we’re kind of “fair weather” winter anglers, lol. I REALLY don’t like being cold! 😉
Yikes – can’t imagine rushing to get off a lake if the ice was iffy. Such a risk to take!
Love the cows – what pretty markings 🙂
This was a particularly attractive herd – we don’t see many with long horns around here, either. I don’t know anything about cattle breeds; I wish I knew what kind these are.
