I am keeping the home fires burning and re-visioning my memoir! We are a family with big dreams.
A stunning spring morning at Lake Minnewanka.
This is Mount Inglismaldie nearly 10,000 feet.
What a handsome couple standing up on Aylmer Lookout.
We walked from away down at the end of the lake and guess what we have to walk back. Round trip 22 km. A pretty good get fit trip for Clive carrying about 30 pounds.
That's Mount Alymer in the background behind the windswept trees.
Looking north the lake is still frozen. And we are lucky to have all this in our backyard.
