Just go!

Posts have been few and far between for a number of different reasons, but quietly in the background, a trip to Paris has been planned! It’s getting very close to lift off, and I hope to have many pictures to share in the weeks… Continue Reading “Just go!”

the cutest thing you’ve seen today!

Sometimes it pays to be patient.  Three years ago when I went to Jasper on the annual camping adventure with my parents, I really wanted to get a picture of a mountain goat, just because I didn’t have one and I like taking pictures… Continue Reading “the cutest thing you’ve seen today!”

clark’s nutcracker

According to the Jasper guidebook I had handy on the trip, this is a Clark’s Nutcracker.  These were taken at the Endless Chain mountain road side pull-out on the Icefields Parkway between Jasper and Banff. I really wanted to see mountain goats on this… Continue Reading “clark’s nutcracker”
