Mountain Holiday


My apologies for abandoning the blog over the last two weeks.  I arrived in Alberta full of blogging intentions - I foolishly thought I might even get more blogging done here!  However, the days have been full of epic hikes with unbelievable vistas, happy reunion visits with life-long friends, and fabulous eating (and drinking).  By the time I pull the computer to my lap at the end of the day, I don't have the energy to even get the cover open.  

Here are a few iPhone pics to give you an idea of my world has looked like for the last week and a half.  I have to say I am not missing the Toronto heat one. little. bit.  Anyone in Canmore want to hire a partially-trained in-experienced graphic designer?  A girl could get used to this place...

  1. Beautiful photos Lisa! I can't wait until we get to Alberta to start exploring... but we're still working our way around B.C. So much to see, not enough time. Our next venture will be Vancouver Island! I can't wait! Glad you enjoyed your vacation and unplugged for a little bit. We all need that once and a while!

    Enjoy.  That's what holidays are for - to totally relax and disconnect.  Looking forward to hearing all about it when you get home.

  3. Thanks Kerry!  And thanks for your sweet words on Barbara's blog - they meant the world.  Vancouver Island is on my list - I have never been there and I know it is gorgeous.  Post some photos when you go! xo

    WOW that looks fantastic, great job capturing some of the beauty you were a part of . From some of those photos it seems like the food (and drink ) was well deserved.

  8. It is a pretty amazing place Tim, I highly recommend it!  They live in Canmore, which is right outside the Banff National Park.  So many amazing hikes!

  9. Thanks Heather!  I should have had you there to approve of my extra portions... I was feeling a wee bit guilty! :)  And somehow the photos never do it justice, it is so overwhelming.
