The Old Trail

There's a new ridge road
That cuts the mountain to the bone.
Slices through the woods
Like there ain't nobody home.
You can wheel on up the valley view.
You'll never feel the climb.
Oh, but I'll take the old trail every time.
The old trail,
Just mosies right along,
Moves at the speed of
A sweet love song
And the wind through the trees
Carries her own wind chimes.
Yeah, I'll take the old trail every time.
Lately it seems things vanish by degrees.
How soon we forget
We made our tree houses out of trees.
When we going to realize
Some reasons just don't rhyme.
Yeah, I take the old trail every time.
The old trail.
Now may she never fade.
The one where the deer
Always have the right of way.
How I love to watch the wintergreen
Along the timber lines.
Yea, I'll take the old trail every time.
People in cars
Let the radios do the talking
But I always find
That I'm singing when I'm walking.
The old trail
Just moses right along.
Moves at the speed of
A sweet love song
And the wind
Through the trees
Carries her own wind chimes.
Yeah, I'll take the old trail every time.

I take the old trail every time...


There are 421 species of birds in 44 families that
call Alberta home.  (Nature Alberta list says 421 species and 44 families.) 
Birds like the * Snowy Owl and * Rough-legged Hawk   
come to the Calgary area to winter in a warmer climate.  
They breed in the Arctic tundra.


The terrain of mountain, foothill and, grasslands surrounding Calgary make the area a birders delight.  
The Rocky Mountains provide a migratory raptor highway each spring and fall.  Birds like the Snow Goose, who breed much further north, Swans and Pelicans, pass  in flocks, and stop to refuel on the open waters.

You can take the girl out of the country,
but you can't take the country out of the girl.


"The question is not what you look at, 
but what you see."
Henry David Thoreau
