Robservations for October 24, 2019

24 Oct

I have lived in and visited quite a few places in Canada and I must say, the Columbia Valley is by far the most beautiful area that I have seen. Other areas may have the odd attraction, a nice waterfall or what-ever, but here, everywhere I look is gorgeous.
In the morning when the sun crests the Rockies to illuminate Mount Nelson and the Purcells is awe-inspiring. The caps of snow are brilliant, almost inviting.
In the evening as the colours of the setting sun hit the peaks of the Rockies and the clouds above is even more amazing.
The quick trips to the back country to find beautiful streams (and waterfalls) or gold-en larch trees or bountiful wildlife are al-ways great days.
Foraging for herbs, mushrooms, huckle-berries and more. Where else does that happen? Hunting, fishing, hiking, biking, soaking, skiing, golfing, swimming and so much more.
I live in a paradise that is defined by its natural beauty. We all do. Unfortunately, very few of us take the time to get out and enjoy what we have. We are so busy just living our lives and trying to get ‘ahead’. Ahead of what, I am not sure.
Anyways, remember how lucky we are to wake up in this area. Share your good moments with others to help remind them of where we are every day.
