We had absolutely beautiful weather, it was between -5 and +9 Celsius / 23 and 48 Fahrenheit. Right after we got on the highway we saw a coyote but I didn't have my camera out yet and it would have been too dark anyways. We saw a few hawks, missed them all. We were moving too fast, I did get pictures of a few birds but think they are ravens and crows mostly.
We left the house at 6:30am, (I slept very little the night before... my asthma was bothering me, AND I was super excited lol) and we arrived home to my place at 10:30pm, my friends got back to their place at 11pm. I don't do a whole lot of traveling and so really enjoyed the beautiful snowy fields, seeing the barns and that 1 grain elevator... love those buildings! And the sky was so beautiful!
A little info on the truck... 81 feet long, and 138, 000 pounds and our trip was close to 1,000 kilometers. These first 2 pictures were taken with my iPhone...
My friend let me sit in the front most of the way and so I had the front and back view from the rear facing mirror... pretty cool!
We saw these cool broken down combines...
I kept my eyes on the sky and the fence posts lol You never know what you'll see just taking a rest!
We have arrived... we had an hour and 40 minutes to get out of the truck and wander around. We visited their horses, and then walked through a gorgeous all birch forest, then we went out to the highway and took pictures there.
The trees were covered with 2 types of moss. We don't have a ton of birch trees here and so this was truly beautiful!
There were animal tracks all over the place but we didn't see any wildlife, deer tracks, and possibly other animals, maybe coyotes.
And signs of a beaver maybe. Only saw this one that looked like it had been someone's meal.
And I saw this mystery bird... I have no idea what it is, will have to do some research!
These 2 crows *I think* kept landing on the road looking for road kill or food...
The moon was gorgeous, we watched it come up behind the trees, and then high in the sky. No buildings or traffic lights to block it!
And we were on the road again, it started getting dark fast and so I didn't take many pictures after that!
Same grain elevator as earlier... I love them!
Was getting too dark and so I put my camera away after this picture... Chatted with my friends husband while she slept, then my friend and I traded spots so I could rest my back against pillows the last few hours. Was really sore the last 3-4 hours.
Hope you've enjoyed my little adventure. I sure did! I woke up today very sore and super tired, but was worth it! I love a good adventure!
