Meadow near Cameron Heights on a sunny Sunday morning

July 13th, 2014, 7am

I began walking at 7:20 am to avoid the projected heat of the day. I was walking a paved multi-use trail - a 10 km jaunt from Cameron Heights to 106 street. After 1.5km or so, the trail dipped into this meadow. The Anthony Henday freeway was a mere 500m away, but I stood in this spot for 10 minutes, watching the morning light unfold across this easily-missed enclave in the valley of the North Saskatchewan river. Cyclists and joggers passed by, but I was content to let a few minutes slide away without ambition or concern.

Shu and Christine said thanks.
