Winter wonderland

February 7, 2010

This past week I have been on vacation in the land of frozen milk and honey.  For three days we were swaddled in a thick fog; it was like the world disappeared.  When the fog finally did lift, it left behind beautiful white tracery on the trees and shrubs.  Here are a few photographs (click to enlarge).

In the clear:

I didn’t spend all my time looking at snow-lined branches though.  I also found time to take a drive in a very cool car:

    Glad you had a good vacation in Alberta! Only there would anybody take a cobra for a drive in the winter. How well did the car seat fit in it?

    Love the first picture of the trees.

    Our trees looked like that 3rd picture for a couple of days. It was wonderful.

    Jim, that car could barely hold the driver and one petite passenger; the car seat was out of the question. I will admit that it was a tad cool when driving on the highway, but a balaclava, a hat, goggles, two pairs of gloves, a parka, a scarf, and a good pair of winter boots did the trick.
