British Columbia

Spending 5 days in the car would be more than enough for any kid to ban long distance car rides for a life time but somehow we talked them into another few hours to our weekend destination across the Continental Divide to Panoram, BC

We saw Rockies upon Rockies!

everywhere we looked the view was more spactular than the last

The rivers along the highway were crystal clear and blue

The boys had a great time exploring, throwing and collecting river rocks and taking the time to smell the flowers!

Big or small everything was amazing

Pollen Jock!

And the scarriest view of all, NEVER go near a momma bear and her baby!

I safely shot this from the car driving about 30 miles an hour!

Yes my cycling friends there are hazards of cycling in the mountains, thankfully this bear was more interested in what he was eating than the guy on his bike. Who's ready to come cycle with me?
*And just a little photography note, all of these were shot with my new 24-70L 2.8 lens. Harry bought this for me before we left the states and I never seem to take it off my camera, it is the perfect "walk around" lens

great scenery shots. I really like the panoramic shot. We both saw the face in the rock which was way cool.

Wow! Heather, you are doing a great job making this an adventure for your family. (And I know what that takes out of a mama!) Love the shot of the bears. Can't wait to show it to the girls. Your hand photography helped get us through some tough days and it is now packed up in Joel's mustang and headed home. Some day when we are in the same place at the same time we will have to update some family shots. We have all changed both inside and out from when you took those shots last summer. Who could have know what the road of life would bring!
