Alberta snapshot: Along The Cowboy Trail.

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.
