Road trip to Police Lake and Waterton

White Turtle IV, fun to drive on road trips

I needed to get out on a road trip so I decided to head on a road trip to Police Lake then to Waterton. My plan was to do some kayaking but mainly it was just to get out of town for a while. I am starting to need some wilderness time.

A road trip is not complete in the spring or summer without seeing some Mountain Bluebirds.

It always seems to be windy down there but this day it wasn’t bad. I got to see a lot of scenery and stop in and visit some friends. It was the first trip for the White Turtle IV and gave me a chance to figure out where all my gear was to go. I have to stay organized when i am out so I can find things when I need them and with a new vehicle I have to find all the storage spots to keep me organized.

The day turned out a lot better then I thought it would. Lots to see and take pictures of and a nice drive.

I think I found spots for most of my gear as well.

Mud Flaps – White Turtle III

Mud Flaps

Back in December I ordered a set of mud flaps for the White Turtle III. It was actually the van’s Christmas present. They arrived a week into the cold snap that we had and I was not going to try installing them at -30 or -50. So today all the ice and snow melted in the driveway and it was warm enough to install.

Bird Photography

I love bird photography and cannot wait to get back to one of my favorite birding places – Frank Lake. I think most photographers have those places that we just love to shoot at and this is one on my list. Only problem is that I don’t want to leave as there are so many subjects to photograph.

There are so many bird species at Frank Lake that it is almost impossible to go for just one species. Each time I go I always think that I will only shoot one species and then another shows up and I am shooting that one.

Oh well there are worst things that a person could be doing for a couple of hours.

Waterton – Spring has sprung – April 20 2018

Spring has Sprung

The first positive signs of spring finally started to appear and I decided that I should make a run to Waterton.  I also was hoping to spend the night in the new van so I thought that it would be a good chance to do both things at once. Environment Canada changed the  weather forecast just before I left on Friday advising of very strong winds all day on Saturday so the night in the van ended up being postponed.  This early in the year strong winds mixed with lots of snow in the bush and muddy trails was more than I wanted to deal with but that did not stop me from at least heading out for the day.

Introducing The Van – White Turtle III

Many of my friends and clients know about the new company vehicle that I am working on.  In case you didn’t I will put some updates and information here  on the blog for you to follow along with. (also it is too hard to keep sending out information to people that ask about the progress so I can link it here under the category VAN ).
