It’s currently around 400,000 degrees* here.  So this picture of a frozen James Bay, Hudson Bay, and Nunavut is quite refreshing!  And, of course, absolutely lovely… our beautiful blue marble…

* I’d specify this is in C, but I think at this point it doesn’t matter if it’s C, F, or K…

In a lot of ways, it seems very silly and unassuming.  After all, it’s ‘just’ a series of marble trials.  Yet done with such rigour, seriousness, and with completely earnest commentary played totally straight that it is tough not to get sucked in… and even root for your favourite team/country.  Totally fun to watch, and impressive to think of all the work behind the scenes to set it up and have it be so compelling.  Here’s the first event of this year’s competition to get you started!

A little Watership Down-esque painting…

Oh glorious day!  The scourge of banal renaming at Canada’s Wonderland is coming to an end!  Once more, will Wilde Knight Mares, Wilde Beast, Dragon Fyre, and the Canterbury Theatre grace the land of Medieval Faire.  I can only hope that the themeing and paint jobs are also brought up to their full grandeur.

Now if only they’d return the Spinnovator (UGH!) back to Quixotie’s Kettles…

(And yes… pun title fully intended)

To celebrate, here are some great photos from Wonderland’s first season, all from the Toronto Archives:

Those aren’t snow covered mountains… they’re dunes!  Constantly shifting, morphing, changing, sand on the plains around the Pamir Mountains in China.  Truly stunning.
