The St. Mary's River is high and the water is moving with a fast pace creating some rapids that are fun to ride. The vegetation around the river is lush and green. The clouds float by quickly and morph their shape from one image to another. It's a hot day and as always: a bad day on the river is better than a good day at work. (unless you like your job)
Nature is like that old saying in Forrest Gump. Like a box of chocolates; you never know what you gonna see next. A bear, a bird, an interesting cloud. A dust funnel swirling in the air. This Long-billed Curlew flew over the Milk River Reservoir very elegantly with its wide wing span.
When you experience the beauty of nature you don't need many words if any. The simplicity, the elements, the wonders and the unpredictability gives nature a sense of magic. As seen in this picture of the Milk River Reservoir and the land surrounding it nature speaks in ways we can see with our eyes and feel with our hearts.
Writing on Stone Provincial Park is great to visit any time of the year. Now it's spring time and the trees, shrubs and grass are green. The flowers are blooming and the birds are chirping. The Milk river is fast and the water level is high. Floating on the river gives us a different perspective of these majestic hoodoos. From the water they seem somewhat bigger and more mysterious.
Spring is coming and the coulees are greening up. The birds are chirping and nesting, the pelicans are back. The flowers are blooming and the trees are budding. The High level bridge looks better than ever with the spring colors.
The water looks beautiful at Green Lake with amazing hues of blues and greens. The surrounding trees and the clear blue sky give the water a nice contrast.

This old barbwire fence needs some TLC. The broken wires and staggering posts give the picture a rustic charm.
This week we are going to the outskirts of Courtenay, British Columbia on Vancouver Island. Spring is in it's full glory with green grass and yellow flowers. This old barn takes us back in time. The snow covered mountains create a great backdrop as they fade into the sky.
White windmills against the big blue Alberta sky with rolling fields. It looks peaceful and picturesque.
