My flower pots are in full bloom,

and clear summer nights,
a wonderful time of the year.

Reflections of an Icy Day

Rain and freezing temperatures
 make an interesting combination,
 ...create beautiful scenes
and dangerous situations.
Thankfully our power
remained on but many were without today.

Rich Colours

We enjoyed this gorgeous Sunset last evening,
 before a change in weather this morning
brought a return to rain showers.
Awe inspiring!

Ferry Adventure

Off on an adventure,
boarding the Ferry to Vancouver Island.

With Mt. Baker in the distance,
we crossed the Strait of Georgia
and passed the returning ferry.
The weather was gorgeous, and we delighted in standing
on the bow of the ferry, with the frigid wind in our faces,
enjoying the gorgeous views of the narrow Active Pass
between the Gulf Islands.

A highlight was the sighting
of these playful Orcas in Active Pass.

Through the Fog

Heading west into Jasper National Park and into the fog, which
obscured the splendid mountains that we knew were hiding there.   

And then the fog melted away and this is the vision we saw...

Beautiful Moods of Nature

A moody day in Jasper National Park,
with the low cloud and fog finally lifting,
 but the weather can not subdue the mature colours of late summer. 
 Here we see glimpses of the Athabasca River,
which originates in the Rockies
and flows north into the Mackenzie River,
  eventually draining into the Artic Ocean
many miles away.
