Banff in the Rain

I have been to Banff (in the Canadian Rockies) twice before, once as a child, and once as a teenager. I have always vowed to go back. I swelled with emotion entering the Bow Valley, overcome with gratitude to my parents for planting this extraordinary place so deep in my heart. Later, I cried with despair because I could see only these glimpses of its glory due to rain. I’ve pined to come back here for decades only to be driven inside to look at rock shops, galleries, and jewelry stores? But our daughter found and bought for herself an exceptional Dendric Opal that looks like flying birds that she is very pleased with, and I remain hopeful I’ll get to see something here in the coming days. The color of the river and lake water remain as remarkable as my memory!

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.

    Did you ladies go to Moraine Lake….near Lake Louise? Don’t miss it. Thank you for such generous, beautiful sharing.

      That photo of our daughter and I together in this post was Moraine Lake with very little visibility. We returned later both there and Lake Louise when we could actually see them… look for posts in the near future!
