This Is Not My City :)

On a recent trip to northern Alberta to visit family over Easter weekend, I was gifted with the sighting of this mama and her yearlings!
Best wishes to all in this season of new beginnings!

Be Silly

Silly
Giving yourself permission to be silly will nourish your creativity and is a good exercise in letting go! (personal photo from a proud nephew’s wedding day last summer)

Moose Loop, Jasper


I continue to share winter memories. These photos are from the Moose Loop snowshoe trail near Jasper, Alberta. It was a quiet afternoon with pristine snow. The trail was well travelled but you can see from the photo of me by the large rock what happens when you stray off trail. I sunk to my thighs even with the snowshoes! We chose to hike the trail counter clockwise and were rewarded with the final couple of kilometers being along a lake with stunning mountain views. The scenery reminded me of Robert Frost’s poem, Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening (1923). Here is the final stanza of that poem:

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Spring? Skiing

With spring reluctant to arrive we decided to enjoy abundant snow at Fernie, BC. A cornice on the mountaintop behind me looked very much like a huge, dollop of whipped cream or a gigantic white chocolate Hershey kiss 🙂
Snow conditions were great for skiing. What a fun way to spend time with friends!
