This is another beautiful place. I am astounded by the majesty of Canada. Thanks for writing about it.

Lana and I are talking about a trip to Yellowstone in the near future. I'm looking forward to getting out and doing some good hiking in nature.

I dig that reflection. Picture perfect.

gorgeous mirrored lake- so gorgeous I might forgive you for not posting 2 sentences : )

Maria said...

Barbara, thank you for your visit! The tubular root D'Ora is sniffing in the market is cassava, manioc, I found it out when I looked through all the pictures I made and found a sign saying cassava.
I have never tasted cassava or cooked it, but many people like it.

I could sure picture myself on the bank with a fishing pole.

Barbara Martin said...

Josh, it has the same effect on me. Alberta has many sunny days.

Debra, every nook and cranny in the Rockies has a hidden gem.

Charles, from Yellowstone it's a wee bit farther to Glacier.

Barbara Martin said...

David, you'd like being there too.

Clare, had a crisis at home with water dripping through the kitchen ceiling. Though you'll be able to read more than two sentences at BTAP this weekend.

Maria, thanks for the name. I will see what I can find out about it. D'Ora thought it smelled good, so maybe you should try cooking it to find out.

What a beautiful lake. I once got to spend a couple of days in the Canadian Rockies and the scenery is majestic. Hope your water leak isn't too bad.

Pam said...

It looks serene Barbara. I found a delightful quote that I added to my previous comment on Perce Rock a while back.Couldn't resist when I found it!

Barbara Martin said...

Bernard, the lake is very enticing.

Linda, the water leak was short lasting, thank goodness, but now my cold tap water tastes strange.

Pam, it has a nice appeal in sunshine.
