Beehives near a place called Michelsen's Marsh, south of Lethbridge. I don't recall ever seeing any of these before, but I saw quite a few of them driving around southern Alberta last week.

We spent a couple of nights in Lethbridge and a couple in Medicine Hat. Both are quite attractive smaller cities, but I preferred Lethbridge. Maybe it was just the luck of the draw, but the hotel we stayed at and restaurants we went to in Lethbridge were much nicer. Lethbridge is also where I grew up, and I have mostly fond memories of it.

Me, geocaching in Red Rock Coulee. This is a somewhat remote location, about 20 miles off the main road. We've been here a few times before (see here, for example) and are usually the only people there.

The bald-headed prairie. Much of south-eastern Alberta looks like this. I kind of wish I'd headed south-west instead, to the foothills and mountains. Perhaps next time.

    I drove around town today and was shocked at the number of trees that had been damaged by the heavy snowfall earlier in the week. It's too early in…
