More Canadian Rockies Gorgeous!
And Summer Give-Away….
I promised I’d share a few more vacation photos — Banff and Yoho National Parks in the Rockies. The ice-capped mountains along the Continental Divide are just sooooo awesome!! Some great hikes, magnificent mountains, incredible glaciers. Note — For the first time ever, we encountered a bear on the trail — Bear looked at us; bear waddled away (we were quietly relieved)!!
If you’ve never visited the Canadian Rockies, there are more photos (from our trip two years ago) on my Xtra Photos Page.
Reminder — Summer Give-Away #3:
And this is also a reminder of my Summer Give-Away — I’m offering a truly delightful small Ewer/Pitcher by Canadian Artist, Sarah Lawless! I really enjoyed discovering Sarah’s lovely work during our stop in British Columbia!!
