Today, I went for a walk around the neighbourhood. There was a bit of fresh snow on the ground and it wasn’t too cold for once in Calgary!
This is the alley outside my house. The residential roads are all covered with thick, tightly packed ice and snow! In this view, you can imagine how every part of the alley would look the same at night, which is what I discovered the hard way.
Having any type of fun at this elementary school isn’t allowed. I wonder if any kids named Scooter ever got bullied and kicked off school grounds because of this sign.
A very nice house without an accessible garage. Either snow birds live here, or they just never use a car. You can’t see it clearly in this picture, but there’s also a front gate before you get to the front door. It must really be an ordeal to leave and come back to this place.
This environmental park I walked through is very nice, though the effect of the “natural environmental” part is contradicted somewhat by the large power towers in the background.
Another shot from the environmental park. Those garages must be the natural habitat for wild, undomesticated trucks and cars.
I kid you a little with the pictures above. This park actually has a nice view of the river and lengthy walking trails with benches.
Not too far off in the distance, you can see the mountains. This is a big city, but nature isn’t too far away either.
