Mountains and Marshes --Happy Birthday Canada

It's July 1st and that means it's Canada's birthday. If you're curious, but too polite to ask her age, she's 141 today.

Here's a view of a magnificent mountain scene. It's looking west on the David Thompson Highway from Abraham Lake.

This is a buckbean in flower and reflected in the wetland on the shore of Twin Lakes.

Another view of the buckbean because I really like this picture.

Canada is known for its mountains and the unspoiled beauty of nature.
This is why.

Happy Canada Day.

dfLeah - that first photo is one of my favourite areas in the mountains! Gorgeous shot! And I love the buckbean photos, too.

dfBag Lady, it's one of my fave sights too.
Glad you like the buckbean pic. I was pleased with how it turned out.

Beautiful pics....would love to head north one day. I know some of my mom's side of the family were Canadian..maybe I need to do some family research!
Happy Canada Day!

Thanks, Missicat. My door is open for you if you ever find yourself up this way.

Leah, great photos. I love that area of the Rockies too. The shots of the buckbean are very cool.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Reb. I love to take pics like the buckbean one.
The mountain shot is of one of the most beautiful spots I have ever seen.

I love that last shot.

I had to laugh.. only a Canadian would consider that it might be impolite to ask the age of a country. ;)

Happy Canada Day, eh?

Hilary, thanks so much. Glad you like that last pic,too.
