Photos by Ronald McCrea for Google Maps, 2012
This morning, purely by accident, I found my husband's long-lost binoculars on a shelf behind the bedroom door. "Just in time," I thought.
Tomorrow, said husband is going out with other members of the Grasslands Naturalists group to visit the amazing area pictured above in photos by Ronald McCrea found on Google Maps.
The place is Red Rock Coulee, less than an hour from home and seemingly on a different planet altogether. This isn't Dick and Lindy's walking coulee. This is an extraordinary place. It's nowhere near as far away as Dinosaur Provincial Park (which is amazing) or the Badlands up around Drumheller way. No, it's near Seven Persons, which is near Medicine Hat, which is near our house. (On the prairie, everything is relative. You know, like the old prairie joke, "It's so flat, you can watch your dog run away from home for five days.")
Next week, for Our World Tuesday, I will, I hope, have photos taken by my very own intrepid photographer, Richard Schear. Meanwhile, thanks to my sweet friend Jenn in Ontario for hosting today's OWT. Hugs to the cats, Jenn!
