Wish List clouds

Wish List clouds
On 10 August 2013, I went with friend Sandy to Bow Lake, in Banff National Park. It is located along Highway 93, the Icefields Parkway, said to be the most beautiful, scenic highway in the world. She had seen a tiny Liverwort (non-vascular plant) maybe a week earlier on a different trip and wanted to go back to check it at a later stage, and asked if I'd like to go with her. How lucky I am! She had hoped that it might be a particular rare species, but as it turned out, it wasn't. Still an interesting species to add to the list of flora and fauna for the area. We walked very slowly along the Bow Glacier Trail, which runs along the right hand edge of the lake, searching for anything of interest and beauty. This is where I took this photo, almost looking into the sun, but still turned out OK. Couldn't have wished for more effective clouds and their reflection : ) Later in the day, none of the views looked as beautiful as they did in the earlier morning light. We went as far as the second rock fall, but didn't hike up to the Bow Glacier Falls. I had only ever once been to Bow Lake (that I remember), and that was 30+ years ago, but I had always longed to go back. Many, many years ago, I did an oil painting of just the area in the centre of this photo.

Thanks so much, Art - I wish I was still out there : ) Oh, and by the way, I photographed some of your teeny relatives out there. They looked like little insects on the ground and in a pool of water, but were baby frogs. At least, we assumed they were babies and that they will eventually grow bigger. Not sure what kind, but maybe Wood Frogs?? Got a photo or two, which I will post sometime. I only know of Wood Frogs and Boreal Chorus Frogs.
