My world, when we're not globetrotting, is still larger than it used to be, ever since I married a man whose work and family are in Alberta.
My world now stretches from the southwest corner of British Columbia to the southeast corner of Alberta, some 1400km (870 miles) across a dozen mountain ranges including the Rockies, and across the prairie "where the deer and the antelope play".
The prairie, contrary to my long-held belief, is not completely flat. In some places there are hills and, in other places, coulees (a pretty word for holes in the ground, or ravines).
The coulees near the South Saskatchewan River start, for us, near our back yard. My husband Dick, and our dog Lindy, usually take their daily walk around the tops of some of these scenic ravines, and they never know who they'll meet: other dogs walking their owners; cats out for a stroll without their owners; or deer who know no owners. So far, Dick and Lindy haven't met any antelope, although we often see them in the fields on the other side of town.
This week, for My World Tuesday http://showyourworld.blogspot.com/ I've chosen some of the photos taken by Dick (Richard Schear) and Lindy (who doesn't have her own camera but is good about waiting while Dick uses his) so you can see a coulee, some of the wildlife, and a lovely coulee cat.
