Canadian Rockies

I took hundreds of photos on our trip to the Canadian Rockies (Calgary, Banff, Jasper etc.). Photo above was taken in Jasper, across the street from our bungalows. The female elk (wapiti) are called cows, the babies are called calves.

It's hard to believe that some people do not know how dangerous it is to approach wild animals. I guess they think they are like the ones on the television. Anyway, we saw bear (safely from the bus), deer, elk, chipmunks, ground squirrels and other rodents.

I took too many pictures of the glaciers, mountains and lake to post here, but if you have the time and patience, you might enjoy viewing them. Here is a link. Linda's photos of the Canadian Rockies.

I forgot to post my last painting before I went on vacation, so here it is:


And finally, a new profile picture:
I loved the different colors on the lakes there. Some interesting greens (from glacial silt), some bright blues. I'm having difficulty decided which image to paint first!
