They may just be snapshots to everyone else, but for me, they are my most beautiful photos. Not because of composition, creativity, style or technical expertise, but because of the memories they evoke. This is why I picked up a camera in the first place. Snapshots of my life.

Linking generations, getting to know our ancestors and learning to love our family that we have with us now.

The weather is constantly changing in the Rocky Mountains. On our way back to the city after our day of hiking, we saw an amazing double rainbow. Not only was it double, but the lower rainbow had the illusion of the blue-indego-violet colors being mirrored, so we could see them twice. It was amazing. As we drove into the city, it seemed as if we passed underneath the rainbow. We frantically searched for that pot of gold. No luck. (I took all these shots from the passenger seat of the truck.)

Below: In this image I removed some clutter from the foreground; a back hoe, and some yellow cones. It was a construction zone. Not a pretty backdrop for such a beautiful rainbow.

Love hiking in this area. Beautiful mountains.

To get to our hike, we drove the highest (in elevation) road in Canada.

We didn't walk this particular .5 km trail, perhaps another time. It really is beautiful.

I'm having fun going through the thousands (yes, thousands) of pictures I took this summer. These were taken on July 26. I love the fact that we are all wearing our hoodies to stay warm.

The two older ones head out on the pond in hopes of catching their first fish. She asked, "You do what to the worm and what to the fish?" Fishing may not be a good fit for her.

The younger one wanted to go too. Next time. There will be a next time.
