More Trans-Canada Trail

Part of the Trans-Canada, or Great Trail, as it’s now called, runs through a the Migratory Bird Sanctuary within the city of Regina, Saskatchewan, where I live. On a cool, windy early April day, I went walking there. These ducks were happily swimming around in a puddle, rather than taking advantage of the lake on the other side of the hill.
