Before I get into the news of the week, my Mom was asking about a few of the pics from my last post, so I will describe the photos in a bit more detail for her....
"THERE ARE A COUPLE SETS OF PICTURES THAT HAVE REALLY PEAKED MY INTEREST, MAYBE YOU COULD EXPLAIN THEM....THE TWO WITH THE FUNNY STATUES AND THE ONE WITH THE FENCE AND A CROSS"
The 'funny statues' are actually the Canmore Hoodoos - they are small spires of a conglomerate-type rock that stand on the Benchlands hillside overlooking the town.
The fence and the cross are grave site markers within the historic section of the Canmore Cemetery.
This area of the cemetery gives a glimpse into the rich history of the railroad-turned-mining town, with headstones (and remnants of!) dating back to the late 1800's. It possibly sounds a bit creepy, but I recommend taking a walk through this incredibly interesting and beautiful place.
Yes that's right friends, I'm headed to Belize. I have about three weeks to research myself silly and decide what to see and do, which of course is always exciting to me. I can't wait! In the interim, I've been able to score some lovely outside time, namely an extra-long weekend in the mountains. Even though this past Monday was a stat holiday and the weather was stellar, the beauty of shoulder season is that the towns and trails were virtually crowd-free!
|How's that for eye-candy!|
Tomorrow it's back to work, so wish me luck with trying to focus on my job.... LOL! And hopefully everyone was able to enjoy a nice Remembrance Day. I am so grateful for the freedom that was fought for by our Veterans.... I am thankful every single day for where I live and for the amazing life choices that are available to me, all because of those brave men and women. I will never forget.
