Skeletons in the forest.

It DOES have a bit of a spooky quality to it, doesn’t it?  On a hike a couple of years ago, my hubby and I came across this grove of dead trees in Sibbald Flats, Kananaskis.  The trees were originally planted in 1974 as part of a logging reclamation project.  Something tells me even more reclamation is in order….

Wishing you a safe and happy Hallowe’en!  Are you doing anything to celebrate?

Mountain walk.

I hope everyone is enjoying the festive season! Have you had a chance to get out and do some gardening? (Weather permitting, of course!). Or perhaps you’ve gone on a nature walk?

My hubby and I attempted to work off some of the holiday cookies on Christmas Day and did a bit of wandering around Canmore and Kananaskis Country. We live less than an hour’s drive from the Rocky Mountains and it is always such a treat to head out there! No matter what time of the year, there’s always something new to see…while I’m especially fond of going on wildflower hunts in the late spring and early summer, you simply cannot beat wintry scenes like this:

One of my goals for 2013 is to spend even more time outdoors!  Have you made any resolutions yet?

Have the happiest of New Years!  Make every moment count!  🙂
