GOSH, what season do I love the most? I have been asked that many times and I have a different answer every time. I have come to realize what ever season it is on any given day when I am "out & about" is the season that I love the most! Sometimes it's a specific season yet it looks like another season or it feels like a different season, on some days I have experienced all four seasons. All that being said, I loved today's season!
The gondola up to Sunshine Village stops running for the hiking season on September 8th so I thought I should squeeze in one last trip up to the top of the world. In hindsight I should have purchased a summer pass. Note to self: buy one next year. I knew I would be in for amazing colourful sights and the weather forecast said it would be an ideal day.

Now it was time to look forward.
I crested the hill and the view exploded.

The colours today were so splendid.
I was surprised to see the paintbrushes and hippies on a stick were still prime looking.
This collage of photographs depicts why I love this season!
There was more green rather than red around Grizzly and Larix Lakes.

I love being on top of the world at Sunshine Meadows in all seasons. I felt so fulfilled from today's experience, I was now ready to board the gondola down to the parking lot and then get on home. I have many wonderful memories of this summer up here.
