Creek at the Ink Pots above Johnston Falls. The hike up was quite busy, but once past the upper falls things got quieter and at the top, there were only a few people who made the trek.

I drove up the road to the Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity yesterday, but didn't appreciate the view for the trees, but I walked down tonight and went up to the viewing deck and saw this lovely view across the river.

Did the hike past the lower and upper falls of Johnston Canyon up to the ink pots with what seemed like hundreds of other people. Despite the crowds, it was a beautiful place to be.

Sanctuary - The lake at the Alfred Hole Goose Sanctuary.  This is one of those places I've driven by many times, but haven't gone into for too many years.  Definitely worth the hike

Impermanence - I've been drawn to this tree for many years.  I think about my dad when I see trees like this.  I'm remineded of how he played a huge role in shaping me, but is no longer there to guide me, but he still has a presence in my life.  I'm also reminded of the impermance of everything and how change and new growth only happens because the old makes way for it.

A better choice - Kayaking along the La Salle River.  We were supposed to go yesterday, but changed plans and the weather today was perfect.

Just a passing shower - saw this small thundershower form in the distance on my hike at Oak Hammock Marsh this afternoon

sacrificing - I remember going here last year and getting a fairly boring picture, but the sky was more interesting tonight.  The canker worms were swinging through the air as they dropped from the trees above, but I'm happier with this year's shot
