Trip to Jasper for our 25th Anniversary...
When the sun shines... wow!
We saw various wildlife - thankfully Brian didn't mind stopping every few seconds for me to get out and snap a picture.
This little guy behaved like a dog. He wasn't scared of any person or vehicle - he was squirrel hunting.
This mommy moose was lying in the bottom of a creek... her two little ones were nearby but I couldn't capture them... we were quite high above them, and they were in the bushes.
Viewpoint at Medicine Lake
The day was utterly grey... it felt like I was taking pictures in a Black and White setting - so beautiful:
So once in a blue moon I let someone take a picture of me....
here it is:
Oh give me a home.... ♪ ♫ ♫
Can you believe this is Jasper in January? + 6C
I love playing around with reflections... this seems like a Bev Doolittle "Hide and Seek" painting:
Check out the orange lichen... such contrast on the black stone:
We drove out to Patricia Lake - the wind was blowing hard, but you can't tell - the lighting was perfect:
The next day we drove to Athabasca Falls. This was so neat to see... I've only ever seen it in the summer - but the ice! God's own handcrafted Crystal Cathedral!
When we left Jasper, the sun was once again shining on the mountains - we kept encouraging each other to look in the rear view mirror - "look now" "oooh, look now!"
Brian stopped so I could take one final picture.... aaaah!
