Wilderness

 
Some say that the wilderness is anything more than
20 minutes from a Tim Hortons. 
Here we have a view of both worlds.

Country Dreams

 
The area of Ryder Lake lies above the valley
and the surrounding views allow you to believe that you are far away from the busy city life. 
 However the busy valley is just a few miles away.

Towards the Light...

 
Close to Mt. Robson
we see a glimmer of brightness.....
 and fresh snow
on the mountain tops.

 
...and then I had fun with the photo.  :  )

Evening Glow

 
After a warm, muggy, May day....

 
...and a rare thunderstorm..

 
...we were able to enjoy
the glowing evening reflection...

 
...of the setting sun.

A Visitor

 
Look who visited this morning...
(so glad I wasn't working in my garden)

 
...a blur running in our back yard..

 
...while I took a photo from the safety of my back deck...

 
...and the deer watched from the neighbour's hill.

Heli-logging

(It's hard to take a good photo in the early morning haze)
 
The view from our front door....
...we could watch this helicopter carry logs
from the steep hillside down to the logging truck below.
 

 
If you look carefully you can see the line from the helicopter
 attached to the log far below....

 
...and he quickly flew another log...

 
...and one more log....

(He resembles a little mosquito)

 
....and another ....

 
.....and one more log.
I think you get the picture now  : )

Cloudy Skies

 
The partly cloudy sky dominates this photo
of the level fields...

 
...which lie between the forested mountains.
(It's sure was handy to have
my little point and shoot camera with me)  :  )

My hubby was hard at work today.  : )
 
The fresh bark mulch in the gardens
