See it big here!

 

Yes, this is the official weekend, when all campgrounds which are closed for winter open up their virtual doors for clients again. It's always fun to watch the news later, and see the courageous campers sitting in tents covered with snow, shivering. It happens every year, and yet - you have to be very early out there to get a spot, or you won't!

 

So here's one from last year, when we went to capture the sunrise over Abraham lake, by the wonderful David Thompson Highway in Alberta. Few minutes before the sun showed its glory above the horizon, we pulled to a side road of the David Thompson Highway, that allowed us to drive right to the shores of Abraham lake. The morning air was crisp and chilly. We found 2 RVs parked there, tucked away into the bushes, and we sure felt jealous and wanted to be them. The silence and stillness of the early hour were mesmerizing... something one is not blessed to "hear" in the city.

 

Anyways, if you're camping this weekend, we wish you sun and blue skies, and a wonderful experience outdoors. We'll spent the nights in our beds... the weather here is not going to be camping friendly according to the forecast *s*.
