A beautiful place to reflect

A beautiful place to reflect
I am SO tired (but happy tired!) after a wonderful day in the mountains today! I don't get out there very often at all, and certainly not as far as we went today, so it was an absolute treat! Friend Sandy had found an interesting Liverwort there very recently and wanted to go back to see it at a different stage, hoping it would make ID a little clearer. She asked if I wanted to go with her - ha, yes, you bet! We went past Banff and Lake Louise, as far as Bow Lake (seen in my photo) along Highway 93. They do say that this scenic highway is the most beautiful in the world, and it's easy to believe. I had jokingly said to Sandy when we left Calgary, that what I would really like, please, was blue sky to start with it, then a few puffy white clouds and then maybe even a touch of gey with the white - and that's exactly what we got (plus some rain on the drive back to Calgary).

After seeing this Anne ... and your journey ... it is probably a "good" tired ... stay in Banff off-season and having the area pretty well to myself was an adventure ... and when I got back ... I was "happy tired", if you know what I mean ... LOL ... a purely magnificent shot!!

The only previous time I had ever been to Bow Lake was probably between 1978 and about 1981, with my family. These two old, previously posted photos were scanned in 2006 and obviously were never touched up (which I really should do, one of these days)! However, they remain two of my favourite photos, and I have always longed to go back to this place. Many years ago, I did an oil painting of the lower photo and it's on the wall to the left of my computer : ) Yes, I was definitely thrilled to bits when Sandy asked if I was free and wanted to go with her!

Truly breathtaking scene! Makes my Lake Ontario seem somewhat small and insignificant by comparison. Gorgeous shot Anne!
