    Walk in the woods with Jazz and friends

    Beautiful Fall day - went for a walk down by the river...

    Tasman PE (I love this knife) and Atlantic PE Wharncliffe hanging out:





    Hey, where'd I put that Tasman?! Good thing for yellow handles!



    Doing one of my favourite passtimes in any season - whittling, and a knife that does it well:



    A great knife - sorry, the rest of my Stretch pics didn't turn out:



    And a couple of posers in Autumn splendor:







    Thanks for lookin' and sorry I don't have a better camera/skills.

    - best wishes, Jazz.

    Nice photos, Jazz. You have great camera skills, IMO. What part of Alberta is that? I'm from BC and I have friends in Calgary. I've been to Alberta a handful of times and have always loved it, but I don't know the province nearly as well as I'd like.

    It's the Oldman River outside of Lethbridge. I'll bet you have a bit of nice scenery yourself - and thank you.

    - best wishes, Jazz.

    Thank you very much - I am truly thankful that I have a place like this very close to where I live. It really relaxes me... and I love to birdwatch, sit, and whittle with various Spydies.

    If I found that many Spydecos scattered throughout the forest, I would adopt them all! Nice pics!

    Thanks - I'm just glad I didn't step on any of them hiding in the grass and snow.

    D4 mod and Salt 1 mod for a walk...

    If it wasn't windy enough to blow me back to Saskatchewan today, it would have been nice but I went for a walk anyway. Took along my D4 - it's been hogging my pocket for over a week - I quite like it. Salt 1 came along too...









    Thanks for lookin'.

    - best wishes, Jazz.

    Nice pics. I went for my first spring woods walk yesterday. The Ramps are really starting to take off and I saw a few Dutchmen's breeches coming up. The spring wildflowers should be coming soon in NE Ohio. Looks like you have a bit of winter to go yet Jazz. I am going to have to do an Atlantic Wharnie one of these days. I just love yours every time I see it.

    Thanks, bro. I love Spring - a bit unpredictable around here. As for the wharnie mod - do it - I know you'll like it. Enjoy your Spring.

    Went for a walk and saw a Kingfisher WAY early this year. Anyway, this is just a test to see if I can post pics with the new format...



    Hopefully I'll get some good pics soon. I was really hoping for some good winter pics, but there's no snow this year.???

    - best wishes, Jazz.
