road-trip snapshots (part 1)

28 Jun

I wanted to share a bit more about my road-trip… but this time: less talk, more action.    A post (part one of two) featuring some snapshots and videos I took during my travels.
Hitting the road, leaving 100 Mile House.The rocky hills of the South Cariboo and a very long train in the distance.If this isn’t pure Canadiana at it’s finest, I don’t know what is. A short video featuring one of the amazing views from highway 93 during the drive. It’s just after Radium when you come into the valley. Getting SO close to the cabinPretty wildflowers near the lake.
An osprey. Such a powerful and agile bird of prey. Invermere has tons of them because there is an awful lot of good fishing for them to do.Baby robins in a nest at Nick’s house! Such little cuties!!!Indian Dinner Party!!!YUMMY! On the menu (and all made by me): butter chicken, chick pea dahl, beef rogan, kashmiri pilau, vegetable curry, spring salad with spiced yogurt dressing & naan bread.Working on some etching plates in the open air. Close enough to the lake to enjoy the view, close enough to the licensed Pynelogs Cafe to enjoy a cold cider.
Driving through Kootenay National Park on my way to Calgary.The incredible Castle Mountain – the halfway point between Windermere Lake & Calgary.Back in the big city, but not for long.

*part two to be posted tomorrow*

    Gorgeous pictures! I’m looking forward to exploring more of BC, island and mainland. We love Indian food in this house and that plate would have been very quickly devoured if it were set in front of me. Yum!!

    I’m in awe of your indian food cooking skills. It’s one of my favorite types of food, but it never comes out quite right when I’ve tried it. I’m also in awe of the views you’ve seen–what a gorgeous country. I wish we had totem poles in our parking lots. :)

    These photos are absolutely gorgeous. What a beautiful place you live in. No wonder you’re so inspired by nature! I so enjoyed “visiting” it through your eyes. Sorry it’s taken me so long to get here but I’m very glad I made it.
