A Walk Through Heritage Ranch

blog heritage ranch 7 With all the Christmas craziness going on in the world at the moment, I decided that the best way to spend the day was a walk at Heritage Ranch (Red Deer, Alberta, Canada). Walking down a snowy path seemed much more appealing than wrestling with shoppers and being in traffic jams (I’m not a “shopper” in the best circumstances, so Christmas shopping really isn’t my “thing”.)

Some horses were being harnessed up for a sleigh ride.

Wintery lighting shone behind the evergreens, and at the end of our walk we were greeted by a cheerful snowman.

  1. I know the snow is cold and can be troublesome when deep and lasting too long however it does make for picturesque photos unlike our wet and soggy, lovely photos Deb, reminds me of some I took traveling across Canada in the early 1990s, Frances

    • We have been lucky in that the last couple of weeks it has been warm winter weather. It has at least meant we can get out for walks which is nice. I’m a person who needs a lot of outside time.
