the edge of winter

the edge of winter

the white is receding leaving everything brown, dull from a distance, but it amazes me how many shades there are when you look closely.

snow on tiles

i loved the patten the snow made as it was melting. snow seldom lasts here. it just gives us teasing tastes of spring so far off as we are barely into winter. but at least we can dream….

reflections 1

there’s a pond not far from our house, down in a valley and sheltered from the wind.  after a rainfall it has the most amazing reflections. today the wind was from the wrong direction so there are some ripples, but i managed to get this shot anyway.

banff/lake louise trip day 7 afternoon

  • Posted on June 20, 2011 at 10:44 am

after lunch we headed back home.  reluctant to get right back into our normal routine we made one last stop at big hill springs provincial park

over the river and through the woods…

there were some lovely rock cliffs to climb

and i even found a cave.

i wanted to go in and do some exploring, but was afraid i might wake a hibernating bear,  so instead i just peeked in the entrance.  not having a flashlight with me i couldn’t see very far.

i ended by sitting on the bridge and dreaming of spring, when we can come out and swim in the creek

banff/lake louise trip day 7 morning

we slept in late today, the last day of our vacation,  then headed off on our last hike in banff.

lichen covered rocks are so much fun to climb, and make wonderful backdrops.

majestic mountains

the view from here was incredible! i really hated to leave. we’ve had so much fun on this holiday and it’s always hard to go back to the “real” world.  :sigh  but life intrudes and it’s time to go.
