Reminder – Summer Give-Away!

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:

  1. I thought I recognized those boots. Stunning photos! And I really like Sarah’s artwork. I did send a comment, but I guess it didn’t get through. Your description of her work is right on. It looks like something you’d find in a riverbed after eons of water rushing over it. It’s a good contrast to the rugged peaks of the Canadian Rockies. Beautiful country, lovely pottery.

  2. Sarah’s pottery is beautiful. Thank you very much for giving us the chance to win one of her creations. I would love to win for a friend who collects unique handmade pottery.

  3. I enjoy your vacation photos, all the views are beautiful.
    The plate looks like a earth in the dark night and it is very special.
    Thank you for your sharing and great giveaway:)

  4. Thank you, Marcia, for sharing all these beautiful pictures with us. Both of your vacation and the food and pottery in other posts. I love coming to your blog to see what you post. Sarah’s work is wonderful! I love the form and glazing of her pieces. They invite you to touch and hold them. I love eating and drinking with pottery. It adds so much to the whole experience.
