|After a couple of days wih rain showers and dark clouds this Saturday starts out sunny. The days have gotten shorter and yesterday’s trip to Jasper revealed a lot of beginning fall colours. It’s the seasonal change of scenery which gives us humans the meaning of passing time. As we were driving through a light drizzle my thoughts were wandering off to the year of 2006 when my brother and his oldest daughter were visiting us. We had taken them on a trip along the very same route, along the Yellowhead Highway and camped at the Entrance Ranch where we had a horseback riding adventure. It had been a gift to my niece who at the time was 15 years young. Our camper had been parked in a beautiful mountain meadow which we got to share with a group of grazing horses. |

The weather was outstanding and we had the most marvelous view across the valley to snow-covered peaks of the Rockies. How fortunate we had been to experience that trip. And I would never have guessed that one day I would be able to enjoy this area as a bus driver.

But today I am going to drive the other direction to Cold Lake, our city of residence from 2002-2008.

Have a great weekend!
