I am trying a new idea. I would love to visit all of Canada’s national parks and so at this time I am looking on Google Earth and then visiting the parks that way.
I just wanted to share a bit about myself. At present I am holed up at Banff National Park in Alberta staying in a small trailer for four days. The smoke from the neighbouring province comes and goes. When we arrived yesterday, the smoke was very bad and then cleared off when we got to our destination. I hope to get out and sketch today, hoping that I can see the scenery as this is one of the most spectacular places in the world. Funny how no two places in the world are quite like the other. I never feel …
Every Summer I enjoy going to the mountains in Alberta and British Columbia. This year is no exception. Unfortunately British Columbia is suffering catastrophic fires which are causing entire towns to evacuate and move to less dangerous places. It is a very stressful time in British Columbia right now. We are very fortunate to have such beautiful scenery so close to us.
Watercolour from a kayak – sort of tricky
If you are so lucky as to walk through the David Thompson area, there are a few areas you come across where there are a large number of Prayer Flags tied to trees.
Usually the area is somber, but sometimes there is a lot of sweet racket created by the creatures of the forest. It is an awe inspiring experience to be among these Aspen trees amongst a tradition which dates back further than I could even guess.
