These photos were taken during our October 26, 2020 hike.
As the fall deepens and winter threatens to firm its grip on the city and the river, one sees signs of our winter future everywhere. During our walk, we saw frazil pans starting to form in the flowing water. These will likely disappear over the next few days as temperatures finally rise up to 14 C, if one can believe the weatherman.
We got up close and personal with the frazil ice on the portion of our walk near Fort Edmonton, popping out on the river bank to watch it float by. As it touched the frozen ice along the shore, you could hear the soft hissing sound like an icy kiss.
Feeling Frazil-ed ©
If you are feeling frazil-ed, you need to take a hike,
we are almost certain, you will see something you like.
A walk along leafy paths will soothe your weary soul,
and tiny little details will make your picture whole.
Pausing for some reflection may change your point of view,
raising your low spirits and making you feel brand new.
