One last round from our Canmore visit, from the morning when a herd of elk strolled through the back yard. And a few more views of the mountains, because those of us living in flat Indiana need a good dose of those. The last photo is from our visit in 2016, an early morning promenade that we witnessed as we were leaving. This is elk country!
Not our backyard in Goshen, I hasten to add, just in case you weren't sure. These are from the hill behind the condo in Canmore, with the Three Sisters off to the east. And some sights from the pine woods, and a view off to the west. More rocks and trees!
Last week we were able to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving with John's family in Red Deer, Alberta. It was snowing/sleeting when we left for the mountains the next morning, and it looked like it wanted to do some more when we got to Canmore, just outside Banff. The clouds blew on through, though, and later we were able to take a walk on one of the paths behind the condo and enjoy the sunshine and the mountains. Here's a familiar mix of rocks, near and far, and trees -- aspen and pine. We missed the peak of color, but it was still quite lovely.
