Just A Picture – December 14, 2020

Our Sunday stroll took us along the Moyie River near Cranbrook, BC in Canada. We followed it for about 2 miles through the bush. The river is mostly frozen, soon we’ll be able to ski it, just needs a bit more cold and some snow. To get here we go under the highway and across the tracks. After a few minutes, all you can hear is yourself breathing and the sound of your footsteps. All we saw fro wildlife on this hike was a squirrel running across the river. Luckily, nothing was chasing it. Standard equipment out here is bear spray, you never know. The bears re sleeping, but there is the odd cougar, and even some wolves in the vicinity. Pretty rare to see one. Lots of elk and deer as well. Next time out, I must remember to bring our GoPro and hook it up to my chest. It is gorgeous out there.

Moyie Lake

Lori and I took a walk, something we do regularly now and took this shot of Moyie Lake from the beach. Beautiful view from a sandy beach. Minus 5 Celsius, so not exactly beach weather. Ice is starting to form and kind of be noticeable to the right near the shore.

New Denver, BC – Slocan Lake

Originally posted on our old place. Beautiful place to have a picnic lunch. Stunning views.

A shot of the view of Slocan Lake at New Denver, British Columbia. Drove down to this area from Revelstoke on August 4. Beautiful drive with lots of terrific scenery.

Lake Louise

We posted this in 2012, I believe, on our old page. Slowly moving the best over to this one.

Living in Calgary gives us ample opportunity to hit the Rocky mountains when the urge strikes us.  Banff is an hour from our front door and Lake Louise a little further down the highway.  This shot was taken in Lake Louise in late May, just as winter is loosening its grip on the lake.

Weekly Photo Challenge – One Love

This week’s challenge, One Love.  As a recent love, we are into sailing, the sheer joy of being at the whims of the wind, and the acquiring of an ancient skill.  No noise except the wind in the sails and the water moving along your waterline. The picture I have chosen is of  our first solo sail on Kootenay Lake in British Columbia, Canada.
