Vast Views

Time to reflect!

As a year comes to an end, I like to reflect in some way on how fortunate I am to have experienced what I did, to have been to the places I went and to see what I saw!  To reflect on 2013,  I picked out a photo for each month.  The photos are favourites not because of what they look like but also because the day had special meaning for one reason or another.  If you are a follower of mine then these photos will look familiar.

Grass Pass Bull Creek Hills
My first hike of 2013 at one of my favourite places.
Conditions were more like autumn than winter.

February 23, 2013
High Noon Hills & Sandy McNabb Hills
It is always so nice to have discovered a new interesting area.
Sometimes closed fences mean new doors open.

Kananaskis Lookout
Today the stars aligned.
There was nothing more I could have asked for.

April 23, 2013
Cottonwood Cove, South Coyote Butte, Utah
I literally won the lottery to be here today.
I had to pinch myself to confirm, yes I am truly here, this is not a dream!

Ha Ling Peak
Sololy seeking peace and tranquility early in the morning.
I found that plus an amazing reflection to top off my day.

Forgetmenot Ridge
It's June and an April crocus thrives, a sign for something unique.
I was with a perfect mix of friends who were full of all the right stuff needed to make a great day.

North Molar Pass
I prayed for peak wild flower season and my prayers were answered.
I thoroughly enjoyed my birthday hike.

Harvey Pass 
Such gorgeous colors so high up.  
It is views like this that make me high!

Highwood Ridge & Grizzly Ridge
Coming around the corner and seeing Pocaterra Ridge glow was the golden moment of the day.
The first day of autumn ended with a feeling of being pleasantly depleted.

Prairie Mountain
Today's beauty seemed like a gift.
It was so much fun with the right blend of lady friends.

Fox Lake
We were the first to be in this area this season by the looks of things.
Untouched, so pure, so beautiful!

December 21, 2013
Chester Lake & Elephant Rocks
I had 100% ownership of the area for 3/4 of my time there.  
It was a fabulous first day of winter!

I enjoy taking photos to document my "out & about" days.  I like having this blog to look back on to relive events.  I appreciate when you leave comments or send emails.  I hope what I share here inspires you to get out and enjoy what you have close to your home.  I absolutely love when I am hiking along and come face to face with followers who I have never met.  I look forward to more of those happenings.   I wish you a wonderful 2014 filled with peace, love and joy!
