Some recent photos from flickr and elsewhere. Work has kept me busy, and my travels incoherent, but I'm trying to keep my eyes open.
I'm not sure what this area is called, but I've always called it Hawk's Cry. It's been pinned in my iOS Maps as such from the very beginning. It's not far out of town and the city is fast encroaching—competing with exploration drilling and fracking in the surrounding area.
It breaks my heart to think of this valley falling under the plough, or even becoming an off-lead dogpark, but I suppose everything ends.
Until then it's just me and the hawks, the savannah sparrows and the deer.
Yesterday was spent on a moderate 7.5km hike up Chester Lake, introducing some friends to snowshoeing in our own back yard. There were surprisingly few people on the trail, considering the fantastic weather. I couldn't ask for a finer Saturday, or a nicer view while sat eating lunch.
