Good Fences




Fenceposts with snow hats along the Trans Canada Highway near Banff, Alberta.  These fences are to keep animals, like elk and bear, from going on the highway and causing accidents.  These are really good fences!
February 2014


Fences along a service road on the prairie on the way to Red Deer, Alberta.  February 2014


We survived the blizzard of yesterday and this photo was taken early this morning.  You can see the the sun is shining and the wind is still blowing the snow around.  The road is bare and wet this afternoon.  We didn't get more than 10 cm. of snow but the wind was bad and blew it everywhere.  It looks like January out there.  Still waiting for spring!!  Oh, there are actually 2 fences in the picture but they are pretty well buried under the snow!  :)



The former meme, Friday's Fences, is now being called 
GOOD FENCES and is being hosted by Theresa at 
"The Run *A* Round Ranch Report". 
I hope you might drop by and visit or join in.


Have a great Friday and weekend.

Blessings,

Pamela

  4. Good to hear you survived the blizzard with only about 10 cmm of snow. The reports on the weather network looked awful in some places.
    I love the first fence with its hats on. I used to participate in Friday Fences so will check out the updated one.

  6. Pamela,
    So glad you discovered me over at Suzan's and thanks for checking out my blog. You certainly take some lovely photographs. I'm more of an iPad "clicker" as I am sure you could tell from my blog :). Let's hope spring soon arrives here in the Maritimes. I am itching to get to the cottage and get my little camper out of winter storage.
    Happy trails,
    Beth

  10. Great fences- and that first one serves a noble purpose, probably saving the lives of many animals AND people. I had to shiver a bit with the last shot...BRRR!

  11. Sure glad the storm wasn't so bad, Pamela.
    I'm sure those sturdy fences have saved a whole lot
    of animals lives-so smart! How funny that little pop of
    snow is atop the fences.

  12. I hope that was the VERY last storm of this winter! You've had enough. Love the top hats on the fences near Banff.

  17. Such neat photos - LOVE those "Snow Hat" fence posts!

  18. The never ending winter... The same fences are along the highway we travel to our daughter's home in the north. It's bad enough there are moose and deer signs to be on the look out for, so the fences do deter many accidents.

  19. Those are beautiful photos and I too love the snow hats. Hope you get your spring soon.

  20. Glad that you made it through. The snow may not have been the big story, though I've heard that PEI was clobbered, but that wind. It was still howling when I went to bed last night. It rather creeped me out. And now they are telling us freezing rain tomorrow and a major event Saturday night into Sunday. Acckkkk...is there no end?

  24. Glad you didn't get too much snow. Cute fences wearing hats!

  25. YeS, that brings a whole new meaning to good fences!! I always wonder is the fence there to keep something in or to keep me out ;)

    ooohhhh those snow caps are so cute!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. We need to pray for Spring in your world. Wayyyy too much winter.

  27. I have seen elk and deer jump amazingly high over fences like these, but I'm sure they do deter many animals and are a good safety addition to the roadways, Pamela.

    The high mountains are getting snow now too--up to 18 inches is expected. My area did not get any as of now, but that could change `-- hope not! :) The days are nice but the nights are still cold.

    ReplyDelete

  34. Beautiful photos Pamela - you and Judy ( Cranberry Morning take the most gorgeous landscape photos in blogland )
    But I'm sick of snow lol
    We didn't get the storm - in fact ( not to brag ) but it's really warming up here ( ok I'm bragging a little - but I don't get to brag about much with this province lately - so just bear with me LMHO )

  36. Simply gorgeous photos Pamela! It is amazing how different parts of the country look so drastically different! You are still in a blanket of winter.....nothing to do but embrace all the beauty!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Looks like home! But it's not. Sure is pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Pamela, your calm AFTER the storm, in this case, is truly beautiful, especially with the sun piercing through those puffy clouds and onto the snowy scene below. Spring? Starting to think that Canada has an aversion to this season: we've had flurries for days and it's been raining steadily since 6 am this morning, (it's presently 10:25 am).

    Nevertheless, your images are beautiful, as always!

    Happy weekend!

  40. I love that top one. I do hope your winter eventually quits for you.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh dear Pamela, your shots are awesome and my goodness friend, it seems you are living in the North Pole! Hope that snow go away soon, but I mean soon and you get some spring sunshine. The photography as always is fabulous, though. Thanks for visiting me hon...

  52. Oh boy... I am so tired of this snow... cannot image how long spring will be this year when it finally gets here. I sound so whiny but really, hard not to.
    Beautiful pics.... but so cold looking ! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love the first shot...even though the beauty of snow is wearing mighty thin!
    We are headed south for a couple of weeks and I hope the snow is mostly gone when we get back.
