Beautiful Lake

On July 20th I posted a beautiful peak along with a small portion of a lake on the left side of the photo.  Here is the magnificent scene after I moved left.

Majestic Peak

This peak is on our way to our second stop..  You will notice I caught part of a body of water besides the magnificent height of this mountain.  I am very pleased with my Nikon SLR camera.

Just a Glimpse of the Canadian Rockies

Here is a photo I took at the first stop our tour bus did in the Canadian Rockies.  I took over two hundred photos on this trip.  I did it for two reasons, one the mountains are beautiful and second photography is becoming a new passion for me.  While I am a newbie with my new Nikon camera the pictures look great and I want to share some with you.  Did you notice the couple in the lower right see how tall the mountains are?

Our Canadian Rocky Mountain Tour

In the following weeks I will be posting pictures and items from our Canadian Rockies trip.  It was a wonderful tour put on by Caravan Travel and this is the third time we have used them.  The first time was for Costa Rica and the second was a tour of Yellowstone Park and adjacent areas.

Granddaughter's Graduation

Just before heading off to the Canadian Rockies, I flew to Mojave, CA to attend my granddaughter's high school graduation.  Jamie has been a high honors student all through high school and graduated with a 4.0 average.  Below is a picture I took at her graduation receiving a diploma.  There was a family gathering afterward and two days later Jamie left for Boise, ID with her uncle Joe.  Jamie is now enrolled at Boise State University and is majoring in criminal justice with a minor in psychology.  She is very excited to start school in August.

Back from the Canadian Rockies

We returned this week after having a wonderful tour of the Canadian Rockies for nine days and then spending four days with our son, daughter-in-law and grandchild up in Idaho.  Our daughter drove from Utah along with her significant other for the weekend as well.  We did a number of things together like spending an afternoon in a hot springs and having a cookout with family and friends before we left on Monday morning.

I have over two hundred photos I took while on the trip and need to choose which ones I will begin to post so that you can enjoy some of what we saw.

Cannot wait for my next trip

Very shortly my youngest granddaughter will be graduating from high school.  She is so excited to graduate and then to move to Boise, Idaho.  She will be living with our son and his wife for six weeks before the dorms open at Boise State University.  She received a great scholarship for her first year and she will be majoring in Psychology.
I'll get a chance to ride Gregory the horse I've owned for twelve years.  He is boarded on our daughter's property. His picture is below.  He is now fifteen.
Then my wife and I head up to the Canadian Rockies for a nine day trip provided by the Caravan company.  We used them for our Yellowstone trip last summer and they are excellent.
After the tour we head to Boise, Idaho to spend a long weekend with our son and his family.  Our daughter who lives in Utah is driving up to Boise to join us for the weekend.
What a great trip we have planned.
