Road Trip - Highway11

We decided to head west this time. Our destination was Nordegg, no specific reason to head there, just a destination. It was cloudy and rained off and on throughout the day. Still it was a great day and we got some great pictures.

We turned off the highway and found some interesting plant life in the ditches, including these mushrooms.

This was the road we turned off on. We could see that it went on for miles and miles.

Paintbrush (Castilliga miniata) was in bloom everywhere, along with Blue-eyed grass (Sisyrinchium montanum). No pics of the blue-eyed grass, but it was Everywhere!

Back on the highway, heading west again.

Kevin and I spent a couple of hours here, it is so incredibly beautiful. We will go back! Lots of neat plant life. It's hard to believe that this is man made.
