Let's take a walk ... along the Bow River

The Bow River winds though the Rocky Mountains. We are going to walk along the trails just north of Canmore Alberta in western Canada. You can sit on a bench and appreciate the small things in life ...
A bird taking a bath ...The rugged roots that interlace to fight the spring flooding ...
A seed pod, ready to generate new life ...
The sky is amazing - like an Emily Carr painting.
The weather is below zero, the sun warms you.
Mesmerizing sunbursts at river edge encourage you to get lost in a daydream.
Our lives are re-energized when we take the time to be in nature's backyard.

Way back in 1971, I carved my name into a wood rail along the river trail -- made it back in 81 to renew the carving, but in 91 the rail was gone... Haven't been back since, too many quilts to make, I guess...
