Just about everybody seems to have memories of summer roadtrips from childhood. I do. We drove from here (Vancouver) to central Alberta pretty much every year. Up, over and through the mountians. Did you know that depending which way you drive, you cross 4 or 5 mountian ranges? In my books that's alot of mountian in a pretty short distance.
So this summer we perpetuated the tradition and did our first roadtrip as a family. We split the drive into 2 days, which made for a much more liesurely pace. Everytime we drive through the mountians I marvel at them. Their beauty, their magnitude, their variety amazes me again and again. I haven't gotten tired of seeing them yet. This time I also got to see some new vistas. Because we took longer on the drive, we could detour and so we stopped to hike in a couple spots.

There you go, just a couple highlights from our trip, and now we are back into our normal routine. More musings from artmaking coming soon.
