Blessings of Living in Canada

I know there are many wonderful places to travel to all over the world, and maybe one day I will get to see them in more than just pictures, but for now I am loving travelling through parts of Canada.

"Canada (play /ˈkænədə/) is a North American country consisting of ten provinces and three territories. Located in the northern part of the continent, it extends from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west and northward into the Arctic Ocean. It is the world's second largest country by total area." That is a little excerpt from Wiki-Pedia. What they don't say in there is that Canada is also the best country to live in, by far, no other place can match it in it's beauty and it's kind people. I was not born here, but I am so proud to be Canadian, it is a beautiful feeling!

The Burmis Tree.

David at Lake Koocanusa.

The lake at Salmo/Creston Pass.

Christina Lake, the warmest lake in Canada.

Poulson Bridge.

Columbia Valley Region, breathtaking!

The Hoo Doo's a few  kilometers before Fairmont Hot Springs.

It was not a Disneyland holiday, no amusement parks to go to, no wax museums or island gettaways....just a road trip through the amazing Rockies, Kootenays and Columbia Valley. The most beautiful thing about it was that my 7 year old son said "This was the best Vacation ever!!" to me as we drove the last few kilometres through the rockies and into the foothills. We sometimes don't need a whole lot of commercialism to make the kid smile, LOVE IT!!!
I also wanted to mention, that there are not many places I would feel safe driving over 1500 kilometres alone with my child, but in Canada, anything is possible!

We live in northeast USA & not to far from Canada. We have been there several times in the Thousand Island area & points north. We loved it & thought it was most beautiful!!

Looks like so much fun! Glad you can get away, it's so rare with the pace life goes sometimes. :) Keep having fun!

Thank you Marilyn and Tam, it is nice to slow the pace down and enjoy the beauty of what nature has to offer. The big city although it provides us with the "things" we need, outside of it we are given so many more blessings!
