Early winter in Grasslands National Park (East Block), Saskatchewan

Early winter in Grasslands National Park (East Block badlands).

I love photographing fresh snow on the prairies in early winter. The grass still standing from the summer season has not been pushed down by the weight of snow yet, providing a gentle texture to the  rolling prairie landscapes.

This photograph was taken in in the badlands of East Block. We were located very close to the north edge of the park, near the McGowan’s campground. It was cold enough prior to our trip in early December that we did not have any difficulties crossing several frozen creeks to reach this viewpoint.
