Rain threatened, but it was warmer during this hike than it looks in these photos! Many Springs is a really short (1.3 km) and easy walk within the boundaries of Bow Valley Provincial Park, a wonderful place for spotting wildflowers and just enjoying the fantastic scenery. It’s a great educational site (and would be ideal for anyone with young children), as there are interpretive signs throughout the loop that give some idea of the flora and fauna of the area and the “mystery” of the springs. Hiking mid-week, in poor weather, meant we had the place to ourselves…ah, bliss!
Have you done any wildflower hunting lately, or walked in a new (or favourite) spot?
Sheryl, that does look blissful, what a wonderful place to walk and spot wildflowers. We try to walk as much as possible, not sure if we have seen any views as lovely as yours though!
Walking is such a great past time – no matter where you are, you see some amazing things when you’re on foot!
So gorgeous!! What a view. I must admit, I love flowers but never really look out for them. I enjoy the smell, color etc but birds are always distracting em ;0) I will pay more attention! cheers, Johanna
LOL we’re always on the lookout for the birds as well, but they aren’t as patient for the camera as flowers are…. 🙂
This looks a wonderful place to walk. I haven’t been out wildflower spotting recently but I’ve noticed a few as I drive about. Hope to be doing more walks in the next few weeks.
How relaxing. The cats would love a walk in these trees.
I think they would love to explore a place like this! 🙂
Looks serene. Any problems with mosquitoes or bugs? I associate that sort of weather with annoying sand flies in NZ.
Ugh, sand flies! Fortunately, they seem to stick to the lake areas here. They are horrible. And we have very few mosquitoes…for now. It’s been so dry here we haven’t had the usual infestation. I noticed when we went hiking in another area a week or so ago, that the black flies and flying ants were emerging in droves.
Looking beautiful, even more so as it is pouring with rain here at the moment!
Thank you! We could use a little more rain here…but not today. I have an outdoor painting project to do…. 🙂
All in town walking. Same destination using different routes for different photos. Beautiful excellent shots. A big thank you to you
I love that idea of walking different routes to the same destination – new views every time! Excellent idea for photos!
When we had 75 acres I use to love my walks through the woods, fields, marsh and so on admiring and identifying all of the many wildflowers we had. Nothing more beautiful than flowers in their natural habitat…
I so agree…and you were so very lucky to get to know the nooks and crannies of your property, and learn where all the flowers grew. 🙂
Wonderful place to walk. Gorgeous, looks like paradise
It is so beautiful there! Very dense forest and great views of the mountains.
It looks lovely for some exploring! I bet it is busy during the weekend so probably a smart move to check it our during the week:)
