Canmore Alberta Canada. This is a lovely hike right within the town of Canmore. The green neon in the water are reflections of rocks in the lake. I'd never seen anything quite like it. Mysterious and beautiful as nature is! BP Finalist

Wow! What a great shot. My husband Dale and I have read your e-mail over and over about your events in the campground with the bears! :D What excitement and fun!

You know when I was growing up I knew nothing of Canada. Only that is had lots of pine trees and was cold. It's like the best kept secret in the world up here and once a person sees it, they cant believe it was there all the time and they had no idea of it's immense beauty.

Now I urge EVERYONE to see it. ASAP! :D I am so thrilled you were here, Patricia and cant wait until you return. THIS TIME we will get together for sure! :)! I'd love that!

I wrote a story about Canadian wildlife and bears for a Blog that BPer Michelle Alton has. Did you ever read it? If not let me know and I will send you the link! :D
