Around Mountain View Cemetery, Lethbridge, Alberta
Walking from my house, we met (at a distance - no hugs in these pandemic days) at the cemetery, and walked down the hill towards the empty golf course* at the river bottom. We followed deer and human trails up the coulee side, skirting the cemetery until we found an unlocked gate. Then through the rows of trees and rows of headstones, and back home. Trying to figure it all out as we walked.
*The country club golf course blocks public right of way to the coulees, claiming their private land all the way to the river front, and forcing walkers and cyclists to climb all the way up the hill and back down to get around their private property. Trespassing made obligatory.
