Gratitude Monday- The Bottom of Main Street

Rocky Mountain House is really quite scenic. I'm grateful to live in a town where I can see the mountains from almost anywhere. These pictures were taken at the bottom of Main Street looking west and/or southwest.
The first is looking southwest.
Please enlarge all pics to get the full effect.





The newspaper office where I worked is just a wee bit up the street from the little park in the foreground. The editor's office has a great view very similar to this. This is to the west.


Looking southwest again. That's the post office and a liquor store in the same building. How can you not love a town where you can get stinko and mail a letter from one convenient location?





Happy week, everyone.

How nice it must be to see mountains all the time!

I feel the same way about the ocean... can't get enough of it.

It really is, Crabby. I would like to see the ocean again sometime. Love listening to the waves on the shore.

Great tour of Rocky, dfLeah! Thanks. Think I'll go mail a letter. But can't get stinko at OUR post office, damn it.

Leah J. Utas said...

Oh, df Bag Lady, that's the price you pay for living in a rural area.

Thanks Reb and Mark.

I'm envious of your mountains and Crabby's ocean. I've seen the Atlantic many times over the years. Maybe someday I'll manage a visit to the Rockies. Thanks for sharing, Leah.

Wow. My ideal home - on a mountain next to an ocean!

Leah J. Utas said...

Hilary, if you can get out to Alberta I'll make sure you get to the mountains.

Missicat, that does sound like the best of both worlds.

Ah, mountains! I love mountains. We see mountains all the time, too! Even when we aren't up in them. ;)

Mountain views are the best, TL.
Isn't it great to be able to see them whenever we want to?
