Finally... Holiday Pictures

Sorry it has taken me so long to get organized with this. So the holiday that my B/F and I took a few weeks back... I finally have photos ready of it!
We traveled into British Columbia into the BC Rockies and then came home through Lake Louise through the Canadian Rockies (where my previous hike pictures are always from).
My grandparents are in BC and so that is where we stayed. It was so serene and peaceful out there. No internet, minimal phone usage. Just awesome!

Here are some photos of our trip:

The raspberry patch on my grandparents farm


Crescent Lake (this is actually just on the other side of the US border, so we were into the US for all of three hours that day. :)


There were some intense thunderstorms while we were there. My B/F got this great photo off the mountain ridge one night.


This is the river out back of my grandparents property. It's a treat because you can only access it if you own the property up to the river (which they do).


On the way home we spent one night in Golden at the B/F's Aunt's. These bighorn sheep were hanging out by the roadside at Roger's Pass.


This is Takakkawa Falls just outside of Lake Louise (we also stopped there for a nice lunch). Only about four hours from home now in the Canadian Rockies.


Those are the best of the photos. Hope you enjoyed seeing a bit more of my part of the world.

More stitching progress and such coming up near the end of the week.
Thanks for visiting!

That area is breathtaking. I've never seen a raspberry patch - too cool. We have wild blackberries out back by our pond but I'm too afraid of chiggers to go pick 'em :o)
