I had planned to go to Kananaskis for a short hike this weekend but when I woke up in the morning and checked the weather, I learnt there had been a snowfall warning for the region which warns of up to 15 cm of the snow. So I decided to cancel the trip.
I went to Bowness Park instead and did a little walk towards the west side of the park where this Valley Ridge Gold Course is located. That was not a very impressive walk but at least I checked out a neighbourhood that I had not been to before.
|This look like a bear footprint to me but I could be wrong. Any idea? Maybe a wolf, fox or coyottee?!|
|This is a set of four slightly impressions and you would find the next a meter ahead of this. Rabbit?|
|Obviously a bird and a confused one! A magpie maybe as there are plenty of them in Calgary|
On my way I saw a few footprints of different animals that you see them here. Then when I was going back to the parking lot, I walked on the river's bank and that was a bit tricky because I had to get very close and walk on the ice and there was the risk of breaking the ice and falling in the ice cold waters of Bow River. Luckily I managed to pass and get myself safely to the vehicle after almost 2 hours of walking and photography.
