A young moose surprised me when I was out looking for owls along the fence posts in West Bragg Creek. It slipped under some barbed wire which was the commotion that caught my eye and then jumped up onto the road. Here it was trotting to the other side and disappeared a couple of seconds later. I saw its mother through the bushes looking back towards the road. After a few more seconds, the little one drew up alongside and the two walked deeper into the woods.
The rain came in last night and, with dark clouds apparently anchoring directly above Calgary, fell all day.
The trains were a somber affair both in the morning and in the afternoon. I thought this gentleman’s body language and the resigned look on his face accurately portrayed the mood of the city on this rainy day in May.
