These are not photos from the Mars Rover

These are not photos from the Mars Rover

No, that's the Sun, from Earth. Edmonton, to be precise. In a thick haze of smoke and ash from wildfires elsewhere that is obscuring the Sun and leaving us with a brown sky.

And, for the record, these iPhone photos have not been altered, filtered or retouched in any way.

Edmonton's gorgeous river valley

Edmonton's gorgeous river valley

There are lots of great things about living in this city, but the enormous swath of forested area in our river valley is amazing. It's fantastic that you can walk and cycle for miles and miles on trails in the middle of the city, yet be basically in the forest or parkland.

These photos were taken off Whitemud Drive, along the path to the ski hill.
