Photo-Finish Friday -Out of the Clouds

OlyPreacherPoint 017
Preacher's Point, good for canoeing and hiking.
Preaching is not recommended.

We need a bit of summer.
This was taken at Preacher's Point in the West Country about a half- hour east of the Banff Park Boundary along the David Thompson Highway (Hwy 11).
It is a wonderful place to camp even though it is free and therefore very popular. The mountain peaks you see are known as ex coelis, Latin for "out of the clouds."
You can read the reason by following the link.

Love this area of the world so very much and wish it was not so very far away.

Thank you for the green.

(I've tried going to the flickr page and full screen is /smaller/ than this. Weird.)

I hope you get a chance to visit here some day soon, Tabor.

Mary Anne, you are welcome. That is weird about Flickr.

Thanks, cousin, I needed the reminder that the world will not always be white and cold! Although it certainly seems that way right now.

Leah J. Utas said...

Aye. You're welcome, cousin.

That is beautiful!! I live in the desert, so I think the mountains and the greenery are lovely!

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Janie. I am so very blessed to live so close to the mountains.
