One Day Last Summer

I came across these beautiful scenes one day last summer driving through the beautiful Rocky Mountain range. Our trip takes us south on Highway 93 (see map below for a general idea of location).


We were on our way from visiting my uncle in northern Alberta and stopping in to see my mother in Kamloops.  Much of northern Alberta is very flat, farming land. When your journey takes 15 hours or more, it is nice to have visual feast to look at on the drive back to British Columbia.

Click to enlarge the map.  The black like from Edmonton to Kamloops shows part of our route.


Hope you enjoyed the sky and scenery pics today. Join in at Sky Watch here to enjoy more wonderful skies. Have a wonderful weekend.

  13. Oh, how wonderful, you got off Highway 2 and over to the highway past the Columbia Icefields, right? Gorgeous shots, Penny. I love them.
    We're taking Highway 3 when we leave early next month to visit the Okanagan for my 50-year high school grad reunion. Makes me feel very old, and very grateful. We're also going to have a couple of days with my family in White Rock and Langley, but probably won't make it into the city. Will think of you, though.

  14. Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. I, now browsing thru your amazing and lovely photos. I also love street photos, and scenery photos as well!
    I'm so ashamed that the last time I visited your blog, when you posted about Kenya. I thought I was on a wrong blog this time. You are so blessed, my dear friend to have such vast knowledge of how others are living around the globe and making a 'difference'. Thank you for all you do to help others in so much need!
