The Drive Home

Murray gets down off the mountain after another awesome day of thigh deep powder. We pile into the vehicle and head north. Murray drives the first leg. As we head onto Hwy 22, we are again amazed at the scenery we have in our province.

We travel all over the world looking for the unusual and here Alberta has some of the most exceptional landscape we have seen. Mountains sprinkled in snow icing, prairies rolling like swells on the ocean, skies as blue as the Caribbean Sea. The sun is low in the west and the clouds are spectacular.

We pass through Longview and Black Diamond and decide to have supper in Okotoks. We find the Happy Valley Chinese Restaurant and have mediocre Singapore Noodles and Beef with Black Bean Sauce. We hit the road again with me driving. The drive north on Hwy 2 is Friday night busy. Murray’s two days of skiing catches up with him and he snoozes on and off all the way home.  Ani DiFranco, Steeldrivers, Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros and Laura Love keep me company as the miles pass by. Before long we are pulling into the garage. Home once more.
