other photos from the trip (see earlier posts)
at lake louise, canada. 10,000 years ago, the glacier hiding in the clouds in the distance extended all the way till the wooden walkway. as it retreated, the glacier left behind a natural dam of the soil and rocks it had been pushing ahead of itself. glacial melt, trapped by the dam, is what created lake louise.
walking in the cotswalds, uk.
cotswalds (this and the one below). this is one of the strangest sights i have ever seen
more from the cotswalds. this was taken shortly after we passed a sheep shearing pen. the cotswalds, incidentally, are also increasingly home to the very affluent. the other striking thing i saw was a farm left fallow, with native species growing rambunctiously. this was partly due to an EU subsidy that tries to control food production by paying farmers not to grow — something i first heard about in yes prime minister.
jezebel, at a soho pub i visited.
