“Keep close to Nature’s heart…and break clear away, once in awhile
and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.
Wash your spirit clean.”
– John Muir
And so we did. Break clear away, I mean. Spending a week in the mountains. We took the car from Jasper to Banff, making stops at some of the world’s most beautiful lakes along the way. This one here, Moraine Lake, boasts sparkling blue water surrounded by Alberta’s Rocky Mountains and canoe rentals to go take a paddle if you just can’t help but get closer.
Trinidad has blown me away with its beautiful landscapes. Maracas Bay is just one of the jaw-dropping backgrounds that can be found on this island.
“Visual surprise is natural in the Caribbean
it comes with the landscape, and faced
with its beauty, the sigh of History dissolves,”
– Derek Walcott
There’s no feeling like that of an airplane taking off into the setting sun. Today’s sunday snapshot is a photo that I took today on my flight home from a weekend with an old friend. Views like this are just one of the reasons why I love the window seat!
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a sunday snapshot up on the blog and since I’ve been busy with final exams and summer is just around the corner (or so I’d like to believe), now is as good a time as any. This photo was taken at Lake Annette in Jasper National Park, AB in the summer of 2013. With crystal clear water and the mountains in the background, the lake makes an excellent day trip if you’re in the area.
