Today (January 5th) I went for a walk in one of my favorite areas of the city, but someplace I hadn’t got to yet this winter.
I love all of the little (and a few not so little) bridges. The Mill Creek always keep flowing offering a wonderful reflective contrast to the white snow.
Another thing which fascinated and is in abundant in the ravine in a variety of colors, textures and forms are the tree trunks and their bark:
Beside the yellow/green and orange colors of the bark, with moss and lichen, there are little splashes of red berries.
Now that I’ve reminded myself of the beauty of this part of Edmonton in the winter, I’ll be back sooner than later.

As disappointing as this little spring snowfall was, I won’t complain after remembering the snow from 3 years earlier on this date:
