Stopping to See…

We were on our way home last week, driving through Kootenay National Park. I was ready to be home.  But Jim suggested we stop and see what this ‘Marble Canyon’ sign was pointing out.  I’m so glad we did!

There was more there than met the eye from the highway…At first it was just another stream, albeit a beautiful turquoise blue one…


And more dead pine trees (amazing what a beetle is capable of!)…
These ones stood like teeth on a comb…P1170802P1170804

But there were flowers along the way…P1170845P1170846P1170818P1170810

And then we came to this impressive slot canyon with water rushing through…


Just an everyday sight to this picnicking critter.


But well worth stopping to see.

And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight…Ex.3:3
