one of the railway bridges crossing the bow river between silver springs and bowness. I took the long route home, down along the river before climbing back up the BFH.
smoke from the forest fires up north hung heavy over the city this afternoon, casting a surreal orange glow across the sky.

these rafters were hoisting a pirate flag. not sure they had the capability to overtake other vessels on the river, but it sure looked refreshing…
Evan and I went for an epic 31km bike ride this afternoon, making our way from Tuscany, down through Baker and Bowness parks, then on through Bowness toward downtown, before turning around and heading back up the hill for home. Not a bad ride, especially for a 7 year old!
I was bonked on the ride home. Completely out of gas, so I had to stop to rest briefly under the Stoney Trail overpass. There were lots of other bikes out on the path, which is always great!

a strong chinook arch blows from the west. hopefully this round of hot pacific air will finally melt the rest of the snow and ice around the city.
relatively thick fog (for Calgary, anyway), turning into ice crystals that weren’t quite big enough to be snow.
