Savor

“The mountain has left me feeling renewed, more content and positive than I’ve been for weeks, as if something has been given back after a long absence, as if my eyes have opened once again. For this time at least, I’ve let myself be rooted in the unshakable sanity of the senses, spared my mind the burden of too much thinking, turned myself outward to experience the world and inward to savor the pleasures it has given me.” ~ Richard Nelson

 

Explored September 9, 2012

 

Woke up this morning to a beautiful day; crisp, cool, a feel of autumn in the air, and it reminded me of our first night in Banff. We visited this area back in 2003 and both recalled thinking to ourselves and to each other that the Canadian Rockies are one of the most beautiful places on earth, so we were eager to return to the area last month and see if we still felt the same. Our friends, Joe, Lorien, and Bev, had suggested that we take a scenic route from Glacier to Banff via Kannanaskis Country, and WOW, what an incredible journey...lots of oohs and aahs the entire trip. We enjoyed a beautiful day with our friends before heading out to Vermillion Lakes for sunset, and this is just one of many tranquil scenes we were treated to; hope you enjoy :-)

 

Be sure to check out our friend's photostreams as well, JoLoLog and Bev's pics; you won't be disappointed. Have a great Sunday, and as always, thanks for stopping by to visit :-)
