Blue Lakes and Rocky Shores

I'm pretty sure that happiness is a trail through the woods that ends in a gem coloured lake!  We explored some old favourites yesterday, traipsing through the woods and along the shore and appreciated the panoramic mountains around us.  We couldn't have asked for better weather.  It was sunny with a nice breeze.  The temperature was pleasant, but not hot.  And not only did we find beauty, but joy in the peace of uncrowded spaces and revelling in nature!  I'm looking forward to ticking a few more hikes off my bucket list this summer.  I remembered to clear off my photo card in preparation for my next adventures! 

It is amazing how ice and plate tectonics have shaped this land here and made it interesting and beautiful.  I feel guilty that I haven't hiked more of it in the last few years, but this is the first year that my small people could handle 10 km, and most of these places are a longer walk away than that.  I'm hoping by the end of the summer we can start taking on some more challenging hikes together.
