Braced for Trenary

We think of being braced in many ways–bracing for a shock, bracing winds, knee braced. A quick stop at Shopko for a much necessary knee-brace had me preparing for a good time in Trenary. Where things might  seem a bit odd on the Last Saturday in February, when the Outhouse Races are run–I was braced against cold with clothing–Braced against pain with meds and knee support.

I was not braced against the sights and how images would pop in the wonderful sunshine and temps. This is the weather my camera loves. This is the time I like to have.

But I had to stay off snowbanks and uneven ground. I had to be careful!  But I still got awesome shots. And this town is worth visiting for its spirit, tenacity, and the ability to throw a good party.

I love my “town” shots. I will be publishing more. Then there are “outhouse” shots at A Winter Journal.
