The Rocky Mountains



Experiencing the Rocky Mountains
for yourself can be
a life altering experience.
By experiencing, I mean not only seeing them,
but living in and with them.
Seeing them firsthand, again, for me,
was nearly overwhelming.

I gave up saying "oooh my gosh" and "wow" and just left my mouth
hang open in awe. Saved a lot on
the jaw muscles.

The Canadian Rocky Mountains.
Filled with hot springs, snow storms,
and some of the bluest skies I have ever seen.
My adventures here allowed me to touch a
part of her spirit and respect
her moods.
For this, I am forever changed.

Karen, I grew up on the prairies and moved to B.C. in 1970. That was the first time I had been out of Manitoba. Imagine my awe when arriving in the mountains. And I was in complete awe! I was by myself in the car and had a hard time keeping up with travelling companions in their car, let alone staying on the road. It was definitely life changing for me as I've been out here ever since!
