To the Orthopod, Jeeves …

Travel is my day’s task. The orthopedic surgeon who will review my arm’s recovery and next step’s in rehabilitation is some five hours away. Instead of piloting my own vehicle with one good arm, I’m electing to travel on the Northern Express, a passenger van that will take me from High Level to Grande Prairie. Running off the road at -25C and having one weakened limb might produce an unwanted and perhaps conclusive result. So, a better idea is to leave the driving to another, today. So, with podcast-crammed iPod and point-and-shoot Canon at the ready this day will roll on.

The photos presented here convey some of what Alberta’s weather can be like; there’s also a fifties Ford from a show and shine … yes, driving is more fun that being a passenger.

  1. I think missed the memo on your arm, but I hope healing is fast and not too difficult. You have taken full advantage of this trip…the photos are gorgeous. I especially like the one of the mountain between Jasper and Banff

    • Hi Angeline:

      The mountains between Jasper and Banff are extraordinary with the cloud-work and sun’s play of light and shadow – beautiful schtuff.

      Thanks for looking in. 🙂
