Roadside Views

When traveling, I like to take photos from the moving car-- "drive by shootings."  This way I can remember the flavor of a place not just the special views.
I offer you a few from my recent trip to the Canadian Rockies in early September this year.  
Oh, and by the way, just in case you were wondering, I'm NOT driving at the time!


along the Icefields Parkway



Oh the colors!   Isn't the sky magnificent?  See the Athabasca Glacier on the far right side in the middle.


 mountains and sky--how glorious!


 That's me, taking a photo.

Athabasca Glacier --my POST on my hike up to this glacier in 2012 with lots of photos

(just for fun--last year at almost the exact same date, we were on the letter V.  HERE's my post from then.  Sadly, the trees are not nearly as beautiful this year.)




Alphabe-Thursday, hosted by Ms Jenny, is so much fun!  This week our letter is "V." Come visit others' submissions HERE and join in the fun!

  12. BEAUTIFUL! I think I get more excited by mountains than any other geographical feature, just because we don't have them here in the Midwest.
