the Icefields Parkway of heaven

No words tonight, just pictures. The conference is over. This morning, my new friend Jane, whom I’d met only briefly in Toronto before we met again here, took me in her rental VW bug up the Icefields Parkway, north of Banff, to Lake Louise, which was still covered in snow, and then further north. We’d thought of making it to Jasper but didn’t have time and it began to pour. Still, it was a magnificent trip. What a breathtaking country we live in.

    Thanks, Linda. And warm – well, slightly cold and damp – greetings back to you.

    Look how your scarf matches the glacial lake—now THAT'S co-ordinated! Looking forward to seeing you in our old stomping grounds.

    Entirely intentional, the scarf and the lake. Each day when I rise, I consider what nature I will have around me and how to coordinate …
    Not sure who you are, JAC, but I'm back in old stomping grounds now.
