Springtime near the Rockies

Things could get quite interesting for my husband after the provincial election on April 16th, so we decided to get away for a little break beforehand. Lee booked us a weekend for two at the Prairie Creek Inn, and we enjoyed the peace and quiet out near the Rockies.

One of the "Charming Inns of Alberta," the Prairie Creek Inn.

Of course, we're adventurers too, so we drove the local forestry trunk roads, looking for wildlife and other points of interest. And we definitely weren't disappointed.


Mamma moose and her teenager...


making sure we behave.


White-tailed deer -- their tails were like flags bouncing across the meadow.


Pussy willows just starting to pop.


The road down to this bridge was white-knuckle driving for the ice!


See the frozen falls?


But these were nothing compared to Ram Falls. 
Just the walk down amazed me -- God bless the welders
who put up the railings!


A pretty sheer drop on either side, and it was windy!






The North Saskatchewan is a pretty colour closer to its source.



Everywhere we went, it was quiet, except for birdsong, 
squirrels, and the wind in the trees.
Nothing but silence when I woke in the middle of the night.
It was exactly what my soul needs now and then.

We were so blessed to be able to enjoy springtime near the Rockies in this year of Blessing.
