Fort Whyte - 31 January 2017

Day started out pretty nicely. Highway was slick in places but it was fairly warm and it looked like it would be a good day for an outing. Was only able to stay at Fort Whyte for about an hour as it started to snow and the wind came up so I knew the highways would get slicker and visibility would be very limited with the blowing snow. 
Enjoyed the outing but it was to brief.
