What I did on my summer vacation. Part 1

It's been too long since my last post, forgive me.  Time seems to fly by.

I really worked all summer at my day job, but every chance I got I headed west to the mountains.  I caught myself twice turning west on my way home from work.  Strong pull those mountains have for me.  I'll do this in parts, and unfortunately I can't even include the entire summer.  I lost my hard drive in July and lost so much data and pictures.  Backup, oh ya, on another partition of same dead drive.  Any way!!

 Highway 11 west
 Highway 11 west
 I've yet to make a positive ID on this?  
I'm leaning towards Symphyotrichum laeve - Smooth Aster OR Symphyotrichum ciliolatum - Lindley's Aster.  This family can be tricky to figure out.

 Highway 11 west
 Yup, you guessed it, Highway 11 west
 And again....
I never get tired of this view, ever. 

Abraham Lake, AB
Abraham Lake, AB    This is MY spot.  This is where I go to ground myself in this crazy world.  The wind is so incredible here, you can lean into it, it will push you!  It is so exhilarating! 

 And another image of those incredible mountains.  :)

Stay tuned, more to come.
