A Sense of Perspective
Taken on the frozen surface of Waterbury Lake, north of the Cigar Lake uranium mine
First aurora show of the 2019 season! It was -35° C that night...

Waterbury Lake doesn't just have monster trout - it has monster geomagnetic storms as well!
Only after the last tree is cut
And the last river poisoned
Only after the last fish is caught
Will you find that money cannot be eaten
Stephen King, anyone?
Taken during the last geomagnetic storm of the season!

Very out of focus, but I still like it, so here we are
Real Boats Rock
"Show me a completely smooth operation and I will show you someone who is covering mistakes. Real boats rock." ~Frank Herbert
First night on the river and we get a nice little show to send us on our way!
