A little late but as it does every year, Spring emerged and showed off the colours that makes it my favourite season. Between showers and storms, I was able to get out and enjoy a little sunshine, along with some much-needed exercise. Of course, I also took photos. This is a selection of my photos posted to social media in March.

Just when I thought Spring was here, we had the heaviest snowfall of the season on the West Coast of Canada. With the snow and rain, I didn’t get out much in February. You’ll see some Winter photos here but I also look back to trips in Summer and Autumn. Of course, I look ahead to Springtime too. This is a selection of photos posted to my social media in February.

My New Year started off in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, Canada, just after an ice storm. While the area recovered from power outages, fallen branches, and trees, I was able to marvel in the beauty before the thaw. Seeing a Bobcat from a safe distance on New Year’s Day was another thrill. You’ll see photos from that and more. This is a selection of my photos posted to social media in January.

It’s already March and I’m very late with this post. I’ll get straight to it. This is a selection of my photos posted to Social media in December.

 

A favourite drive 🙂

I had always wanted to see the Larch Valley in Banff National Park in its golden splendor. Although I had been to the Larch Valley previously, it was in August and you don’t realize what you’re missing in the Autumn. I’m glad I went as it would be among my best ever visits to the Canadian Rockies. Amazing and beautiful! And crowded too!

Whenever you visit the Canadian Rockies at the end of September, you could have early Winter conditions or warm, Spring-like days. There was snow and cold the week before our visit but we was lucky to arrive to sunny skies. The Moraine Lake parking lot was full early so we had to take the shuttle from the Lake Louise overflow campground along the Trans Canada Highway. Make sure you give yourself time as there may be a wait for the shuttle both ways.

We’ll start here, on the edge of Moraine Lake facing the Tower of Babel.

With all the forest fires burning in the interior of British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest, for eleven days in early August, Vancouver became engulfed in thick, disgusting smoke. I have lived in Vancouver for most of my life and have never seen it so bad. Not even close! It was really sad to hear about people being evacuated and even losing their homes. Not that it was important in comparison but I had to change my Rockies trip to somewhere with clearer skies. You’ll see some of those photos here. Now, please join me with a selection of my photos posted to social media in August.

 

A pleasant surprise on the trail. Glad she wasn’t a bear 🙂
