A friend and I did just that this morning first thing. The trail was strung along through forest shade on the slope above Kootenay lake. It was level and lovely and we were in no rush…
Unfortunately, it dead-ended at an active railroad bed
But thanks to my trusty guide we found our way down to the beach along little side trails, including an abandoned railroad bed…
…surprising an eagle on his roost along the way…
(I know, he’s hard to spot in this poor photo…maybe next time I will take my good camera along….)
We shall see. ( :
You search out my path and my lying down
and are acquainted with all my ways.
You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
