    Return of the Cache

    by

    October 6, 2022. This is my cache, last seen on Anticosti Island, returned by bus parcel express by some kind bikepackers. They picked it up when they were driving aorund the island and sent it back to me once they returned to the city. I picked it up from Gatineau…

    Tour de Timber

    by

    October 5, 2022. We went on a gruelling 6 km hike (with 318 m of elevation gain) today on the Tour de Timber trail at Mont Tremblant. This is a seldom used trail off the beaten track, and while the trail was quite difficult, the forest was beautiful and well…

    Top Of The Mountain

    by

    October 4, 2022. Had a very slow day today, but we did make it to the top of Mont Tremblant for a walk around. I woke up with a massive headache which cancelled any plans of cycling I had. Not whether it was dehydration or too much mountain sun or…

    Domaine Saint-Bernard

    by

    October 3, 2022. This is a small unnamed pond near Domaine Saint-Bernard at Mont Tremblant. After giving a presentation to Maskwacis Cultural College this morning I went for a ride through the area; 250 meters elevation gain over 23 km (which is a lot for me). Simply gorgeous scenery. Meanwhile,…

    Corn and Barn

    by

    September 30, 2022. This was a scene on my bike ride today, a shortish 30km effort. But I made sure to wear orange. I also spent time mowing the lawn (part of it; it has to be done in segments). And playing No Man’s Sky. https://flic.kr/p/2nQoxSS

    The Doughnut

    by

    September 29, 2022. Every evening I play ‘string games’ with the cats, and their preferred strategy is to dive into this hollow doughnut and leap out at the string as it passes by. Today was spent doing project paperwork and preparing to be out of the office 10 of the…

    Dairy Farm

    by

    September 27, 2022. This is a Dairy farm on the road to St,. Albert I cycle frequently. Today I completed the third of three presentations within a week, this a panel appearance online. There has been a lull; now I’m relearning the whole process of creating presentation pages on my…

    Cat Basketball

    by

    September 26, 2022. Actually, Charlemagne was chasing a fly or moth or something. In addition to being polydactyl, with giant opposable thumbs, he also very agile on his hind legs. Today was kind of a quiet day, doing one presentation, getting another one ready, and documenting a third that I…

    Wasp and White Flowers

    by

    September 25, 2022. Fall flowers were out in the Reveler Conservation Area, where we went for a short walk today (couldn’t do a lot after a late night return from football). My camera ran out of power after three photos, so I relied on my phone, which was a bit…

    RedBlacks

    by

    September 24, 2022. This was the high point of an absolute dog of a football game (though the Argos played really well and their fans should be proud). 42 of the 45 points scored by the Argos were scored on RedBlacks turnovers, including (I think) five interceptions. The first two…

    Dunvegan

    by

    September 17, 2022. Photo from my bike ride through Dunvegan on a beautiful; Saturday afternoon. I also made it through Maxville and Moose Creek, but didn’t quite make it home – I had to walk the last 3 km because of flat tires. Still, a nice 73 km ride. https://flic.kr/p/2nNn2fW

    Sentier Iroquois

    by

    September 11, 2022. The is the river along the Sentier Iroquois near Duhamel, Quebec. It’s an area of rugged beauty. Andrea and I went for what turned out to be a strenuous 8 km hike up to the falls and back on a sweltering late summer day. A lot of…

    RedBlacks

    by

    September 10, 2022. We were at a rare Saturday afternoon RedBlacks game (I would really prefer more afternoon games). Yes it was another loss, but we came within about 5 yards of winning this one. The losses have been (mostly) close all season, as though we’re just a grasp away…
