Another beautiful and diverse week on the prairie of
southern Alberta as we reflect on Canada Day.

Towering magestically against a lovely sky is Crow's Nest Mountain
near Blairmore, Alberta.

A surprising amount of snow piled high at the end of June on the
summit of Logan Pass in Glacier Park, Montana.
The Canadian flag flies side by side with the American flag
as our countries celebrate four days apart.

I have been here countless times but I have never seen this much
snow at the beginning of summer.
There is a hiking trail going further on up the mountain but today
it is buried deep under the snow.
I am happy to see the Canadain flag in the picture even if
it is on foreign soil ... or in a snowbank

It is always a bit of an adjustment to leave the grandeur of the 
mountain terrain and return to the flat prairies. 
After being home for a few hours I forget what I left behind.
I pick bouquet of peonies and contemplate another kind of beauty.

The day is yours,
and yours also the night;
you established the sun and moon.
It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth;
you make both summer and winter.
Psalm 74: 16, 17

'God'  .. You also made Canada ...
and I am thankful!

  1. Yes, the mountains are beautiful and magestic, but we prairie girls come to a point where we feel fenced in after spending a few days surrounded by rock.
