Another coulee-river walk, Lethbridge, Alberta
Overcast and drizzly afternoon. An abundance of small wildflowers dot the gradually greening slopes. Birds. Beaver architecture. Sitting side by side on a rock by the river. Lots of uphill, less down.

Upper Coulee walk, Lethbridge, AB
Walking and talking make a good pair. This is one of those times in my life (there have been others) where almost all the social contact I have is through going for walks with people. The walks, which are always important, become even more important when otherwise I spend entire days sitting in my house alone. Pandemic walks are a big deal. I'm sure there will be dissertations written about it. A very simple activity, but it's a way to connect with nature and the world around us, a way to connect with people, and a way to have some movement and fresh air. These are some of the most important things.
