This weekend it was sunny and relatively pleasant (64ºF/18ºC), so I took my faithful canine companion out and about. We went to the Assiniboine Forest which has quite a few kilometers of paved, graveled, and woodchipped trails. Although there were lots of people and other dogs out, it was quieter and more peaceful on the farther trails. I saw a few critters out: two Mourning Cloak butterflies, one sulphur butterfly that flew away before I could photograph it, an American Robin, and several fine Black-capped Chickadees.
