Jasper in Winter #17 – Out & About

NOTE: This post contains slideshows and if you are reading it on your phone, it is best viewed direct from the SITE, rather than in the READER.

Many of my photos could not be pigeon-holed into a specific post, so I have placed them in this post as a bit of a showcase. Hope you have enjoyed this series as much as I did revisiting these travels.

These single shots below were taken in February 2005.

After working for 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 3+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wanted me to do has been rewarding. While I still miss the social aspect of working with a team of great people, I have managed to keep in touch with many from my former team and I have many friends and family members who now fulfill this part of my life. Now that my Patty has retired, we are able to spend more time in pursuits and with people who are near and dear to us. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may not become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. Now, as spring approaches, the landscape will not always be so beautiful as white is replace by the grey and black of snirt. I was happy to see that skating scene, as we drove by. Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend. Allan

    1. Thanks Marion. Skating has long been one of my least favourite pursuits. As a young boy, I would skate all day and night on the river nearby. As I got older and my feet widened out, I could not find comfortable skates, so skating was infrequent and I think the last time I skated was in 2013. I still have the skates, though. Thanks for reading and commenting. Have a great weekend. Allan

    1. I remember when I lived South of Calgary, skating on a frozen stream before the snow fell. It was cold, but chinook-ing and I spread my coat out and let the winds push me down the ice. Of course, I then had to work hard to get back, but it was a blast. Thanks for reading Lynette. Allan

    1. A destination all year round, for sure. down hill, cross country. snow shoeing, hiking and just plain gazing. Glad they are only 4 hours away. Thanks for joining me on this exploration. Allan

  1. Wow, just look at those beautiful winter scenes, Allan! I know that ice-skating isn’t your cup of tea anymore, but there’s something truly magical about slowly gliding along the frozen lake. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day. Aiva 🙂

    1. Oh, I’d likely put the skates on if I could skate on a mountain lake. I skated on Lake Louise in 2014 and it was magical. Thanks for coming along on the Jasper in Winter ride Aiva. Have a great week. Allan
