Photo: The Setting Sun

It’s been a very busy few weeks here in and about Toronto. But I wanted to share this picture that, every time I look at it, I relax a little bit and slow down.

This is in Riding Mountain National Park, Manitoba, on the last day of my two month summer trip. The same moment as the current header on my blog. Great way to end the summer!

Riding Mountain National Park, Manitoba

It’s gorgeous in this park, and I wasn’t entering this area with very high expectations. Wow – the scenery with the aspens set against the blue sky, the spattering of tiny lakes, and the diverse wildlife (including bison!) kept me happy for the two days I was there. This was the last shot I took in the park.

Definitely a place to return to at some point.

The hills are alive with the sound of creepiness

A few weeks ago, I came across a video of someone recording strange noises being made by the wind in Chicago.

It’s haunting and creepy, but so neat!

Listen to the noises below:

Hmmmm…hoax or no hoax, that is the question.
