Change In Colors, Thanksgiving weekend, Echo Lake

Birch trees mixed in with the requisite vibrant fall colors on echo lake this past Thanksgiving weekend. Though never taking the change in colors for granted, it still is fun to see tourists arrive by motorcoach to look at what we Canadians see every year!

The Snow Ghosts of Big White

This is the peak of Big White looking West to the Monashee mountains across what they call the ‘Enchanted Forest’. The previous day it snowed like crazy, and this next day it was powder top to bottom. The trees when covered with snow are locally known as ‘snow ghosts’ – great name!

A Fresh Winter Snowfall

What’s there not to like about snow? White, fresh, magical, picturesque… A view out back of house and into the ravine. Another winter has arrived!

Bright and still forest of Canada

Thanks for having a look. This is the last picture taken of the fall season at the cottage. Even with 2/3 of the leaves on the ground, it was still wildly spectacular to take in all the color and shadows. The day was bright, but cool, and completely still. Another reason to love Canada.

Take A Deep Breath!

Smell that fresh air and soak in those colors! This is one of those moments to savor. Life does move fast, yet here everything holds still. Thanksgiving weekend, Echo Lake

The Vast Alpine Terrain of Big White Mountain, British Columbia

The view back up ‘Village Way’ ski run with peak of Big White Mountain in background, and high alpine skiable terrain.  Highly recommend this back country mountain on the border of the Kootenay region British Columbia, for the pure fun of skiing.

The Multi-Colored Rainbow Eucalyptus Trees of Maui, Hawaii

The Rainbow Eucalyptus trees of Maui are found on the drive to Hana. Like good tourists, we read up on them before heading out, and yes they are there ready to be touched and photographed 🙂 Everything about the color is natural. Annually patches of outer bark are shed, leaving the inner bark exposed. This then darkens to a mix of blue, purple, orange and maroon. It really looks like someone painted the trunks!
