A Place to sit and Contemplate

It is great to get on the road and travel,  take tons of  photos, go for short hikes and even buy over-priced items but it is so important in the travelling to stop and take a breather, to take that pause, and just breathe. I did a lot of travelling in a week but did make a point of  taking a moment, or a few, to find a quiet or noisy  spot and just sit, be still within myself,  and soak in the beauty. Here are some of those places: water lilies at Jackfish Lake. Medicine Lake on Maligne Lake Road, misty evening at Fish Lake, Patricia Lake shoreline, bench  beside Sunwapta River, Beauty Creek, and Windy Point on Abraham Lake.

    Beautiful shots, yes sometimes we are in such a hurry to get the great shots we forget to stop and enjoy what we see.

    • I was so busy driving to see the next spot on my list of “must sees” at one point, or many, I told myself to SLOW down and be on vacation.Then I truly enjoyed it.
