The Canadian Rocky Mountains

Almost every year our family migrates to the Canadian Rockies for as much time of the summer as we can. For me it is the perfect place to spend time with the family. Tucked between the Purcell Mountains and the Rocky Mountains, Wasa, the little village we were staying, offers a nice warm lake with sandy beaches, endless hikes and close by river adventures, to name only a few activities. And in a bit more than an hour one can reach the grand Rocky Mountain National Parks. In the previous years I took advantage of this and took my share of the iconic Canadian Rockies images:

One of my favorites, Moraine Lake

Spirit Island, located in Maligne Lake, near Jasper

Takakkaw Falls

Lake Louise

This year, though I stayed put and enjoyed the nature close by. All the following images are taken within a few yards from our lodging.

Curious Chipmunk on the porch

Love is in the air: Mating Boreal Bluet Damselflies

Peekaboo Deer

"Burning Sky", sunset after a thunderstorm

and the grand finale:

Can't wait to go again!
