A Walk in the Wind

There has seriously been no good time to walk the dogs in the past 2 weeks.  It's either been too cold, too snowy, too unsafe to drive or too windy.  We went out to Park Lake today for the first time in ages - the highway was good, the parking area was good and the trail wasn't bad but snowshoes wouldn't have been out of the question.

Coulee didn't seem to be feeling all that great earlier this week but today she seemed to be feeling great.  I didn't have the heart to try and reign in her enthusiasm - she was just too happy.


Her goofy face even made an appearance.  :)



Lacey also had a blast.  I'm not sure what she is digging for here, but it was something exciting apparently.


The snow was pretty deep in sections and then almost gone in other areas due to the wind.  The dogs didn't seem to mind but we weren't all that comfortable slogging through the soft deep stuff.


I changed lenses part way through the walk and had to take my mitten off to do it.  I caught Lacey trying to make a run for it with it.  LOL


Coulee bashfully brought it back to me.  (Not her most flattering picture but she has her "Bessy ears" on which is so hard to catch with the camera as they only come out when she is feeling playfully guilty.)


And Lacey just tried to steal it back.


Overall we all had a pretty good time.  The dogs have been sleeping soundly ever since and we finally got in a long enough walk to have peace in the house.

Amazing photos, as always! Always love seeing your work, and the contrast with the snow is so striking here.
