road-trip snapshots (part 2)

29 Jun

Without further ado, I give you part two of my roadtrip photos & videos. This batch includes the drive home to 100 Mile which includes a stop over evening in Invermere for a visit with Nick and a sleep at my cabin.After getting on the road, I realized I was too tired to do the entire drive, after having printing all morning at Alberta Printmakers. So part way in, I took a short detour to stay at my cabin, and only 5 minutes after the turn off, an incredible and HUGE grizzly ran across my path, gave me a nice view of his big dump (his giant grin included, free of charge hahaha) then promptly ran up into the woods. awesome.I spent the evening hanging at Nick’s house enjoying the incredible view. Tough life… Here’s a short video of the lookout so you can hear the birds chirping and further experience the amazing panorama.Back on the road – finally on my way home. A foggy mountain top stands tall, as I get closer to the Shuswap. Snow in late June!! Now that’s Canadian!A favorite stop since childhood, Dutchman’s Dairy in Sicamous. BEST CHOCOLATE MILK EVER AND CHEESE CURDS GALORE! Thanks for the tasty treats guys!What a little beauty! Hi buddy!!!Getting close so close to home!!! One of the lakes near Savona.Mmmm the South Cariboo.RED ROCKS. The last stunning landmark before I arrive in my tiny town.

I had a fabulous trip, mixed business with pleasure, and got to drive across the lower west end of my gorgeous country! I’m excited to return to these spots in just over a week… Wednesday we leave for upper Alberta to do a visit with John’s family and friends, then will be back in the valley (John in tow) for my 2 week solo show and a month of art opportunities! So, there will be many more photos of summer adventures to come…

    I do envy the fact you live in a country where bears roam in the wild.
