This is a bit of a Hodge podge with some scenery of a totally frozen Athabasca River, some religious grounds and a cougar print.
The river looks solid, but there is an amazing amount of water flowing under the ice being deflected up, down and sideways by the bottom. Not to be trusted!
The colours came out nicely on the erosion bank.
From the signs and set-up, I figure this is a Native ceremonial site.
A possible sweat lodge?
This is a print that was huge! Likely it was from a wolf. It was too large for a coyote and not likely a cougar and too late (and cold) for a bear. This was a good day for me to forget my bear spray!
