Canmore - before the flood

A week before that awful deluge of rain in Canmore, Alberta, my family were up driving around some of the back roads in the area.
 Again and again I will say - what a damn 
pretty part of the world.
Beautiful hues and reflections.
Big skies.
Big landscape.
Big mountains,

and big smiles!

We will be keen to visit again later in the summer, and hopefully the devastation to the town, homes and roads can be repaired soon.

and I hope you find those Big Skies in your part of the world.

  9. It is incredibly beautiful. Nature can be so powerful but she will always restore herself. Eventually.
