Warming Huts at the Forks and the Riverwalk, Jan 24 2012

A sunny winter day in Winnipeg

 

I find the shadows on the snow interesting. Maybe nobody else does. Anyone?

Some daring people cross the river even though it might be thin ice

 

McFadyen Park has seen better days

 

 

These nice new wooden benches down by the river have already been ruined with graffiti. Jerks!

 

The squirrels have been jumping around in the snow

 

This is some interesting graffiti. On the bridge. In Winnipeg. In winter.

Winnipeggers love a bargain - and it doesn't get much thriftier than a Frank Gehry structure for $20K. As part of the third annual competition for River Trail warming huts, Gehry has contributed an elegant design of Douglas fir and semi-translucent ice blocks. The participation of the Toronto-born, L.A-based architect, best known for the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, confirms the competition's rapidly rising international profile.

 

Nice patterns of snow on ice. Maybe squirrels?
