Near Beaver Lake

With early sunset, the end of the day has turned into night. I went walking with a friend near Beaver Lake - an artificial pond on Mount Royal. This building serves as an equipment rental place, a cafeteria, a bistro, a warming up place on a cold winter day.

It sparkles at night. There is something special about walking at night. We could hear sounds - the ducks quacking, the swoosh of their wings as they took flight, but could only see shadows.

Our "mountain" offers something for everyone - even the solitude of an evening stroll.

  1. This picture brings back a lot of memories of walks on the mountain when we used to live downtown. And you're right, there is something special about walking at night, the peace, the coolness, the solitude. Thanks!

  2. That bistro is calling to you, Susan! I like this night shot - the sapphire sky and the colorful lights.
