We went for an invigorating hike again... does it get any better than hiking in such beauty? Anyway, you all know my love of moss, so I thought I'd share this mossy photo with you. It's probably not even moss.. it's probably some strange fungal thing that will make me diseased, since I touched it. I thought it looked so cool though.
On the highest point of the hike, I snapped some photos like this one.. it is a totally amazing view of this lake from way up there... and soooo calm and serene. It's got to be one of my favorite places on earth that I've experienced. I'd love to just go there for a whole day, have a picnic up there, soak in the atmosphere, and watch for wildlife.
This wonderfully bizarre beetle thing on the window caught my eye enough to take its photo several times. Being on the inside of the window and it on the outside, it wasn't threatened by my camera being that close. Cool bug, hey?
Here's one of the snowcapped mountains I fell in love with on the way home. A few weeks ago when I went to Banff, there was no snow on the mountains at all. But now, even further south, they are dusted already. I love snow capped mountains.
It was all a little bit spur of the moment (well, as spur of the moment as I can be given the job I have), but I'm glad it all worked out so that I could go.
