Good morning! Remember summer?

The sun is setting later; the -40 C temperatures are hopefully just a phase Mother Nature was going through; and the snow is indeed melting, slowly. This week, we thought we would give you a sneak peak at what's to come, by looking back at some of the colour, vibrancy and warmth that last summer brought.

PHOTOS NEEDED: We would love to see your photos from around the Town & Country region — whether it's a pretty sunrise or sunset; an idyllic scene from nature; plants, flowers or trees; wild animals, or domesticated pets and livestock; landmarks; historic or otherwise unique buildings; or anything of general interest that happens to catch your eye. Consider submitting it for our Good Morning feature. It could make someone's morning by appearing on the Town and Country Today website and related social media. Please send unaltered, horizontal jpeg to editor@athabasca.greatwest.ca with your name and a brief description of the photo, and make sure to check the website around 6 a.m. for a greeting and a new photo from around the region.
