Fall is falling in ethereal Alberta.
The Larch Trees,
It snowed last night,
dusting the mountains with powder.
You can just see Jim here on the trail of gold!
Soon the larches will drop their needles and winter will arrive.
I have been surprised by wifi reception, but tomorrow we head further north and should be out of range.
Cheers to you from Alberta in the fall~

I love how the tamaracks turn such a beautiful colour! Alberta has such amazing scenery. We plan to be in Lake Louise in a few days. Cheers.
How wonderful! Enjoy every second. I know you will დ
This has to be the best time of the year to be there, and your photos allow us to kinda-sorta be there as well. Beautiful trees, mountains, and pathways all. Thanks as always for sharing, Cindy.
Thank you more my friend for your truly kind appreciation დ
Yes. Thank you. Canada is such დ
I had forgotten how beautiful it was. It’s been years.
I understand. It is a bolt out of the blue every time you visit again. დ
All this golden beauty as we look forward to more green and pretty flowers in spring 🙂
It the deepest winter night, there is a sunny summer morn, somewhere ! დ
Truly beautiful. A must visit place. Nicely photographed too. 👏👏👏
Thank you Michael. If you visit, you will be happy დ
You’ re Welcome. I am definitely sure I would be.
Beautiful country dear lady, showing its magic as it turns into that change of Autumn. Enjoy the wander my friend, and be careful with the bear hugs 🤣❤️🙏🏽
Thanks for the tip Mark! I always gives bears virtual hugs 😉
Breathtaking, Gal! ♥
Thank you so much & take good care my friend დდ

Beautiful autumn photos to celebrate the Equinox. Thanks for shating, Cindy.
Thank you more for your thoughtful appreciation Isabel & Happy Equinox დ
Thank you for such glorious shots of Autumn!
From me to you…
“Amber, scarlet, ochre leaves
drift down as light as whispers:
to kiss this mother earth of ours
like hushed and soft-sung vespers.
The light is muted, delicate –
sky quilted grey and blue
as Zephyr’s cheeks, extended, blow
awry the multi-coloured carpet,
oh so new.”
Peace & Love
Oh, how perfectly beautiful Joy! You are aptly named. This captures the beauty and sacred feeling of autumn in Alberta. Thank you for sharing your Joy დდ
I see Jim
Smiling!!! 🙂 :0
Wow, Fantastic pictures, fangastic nature there!
Thanks dear friend & take good care! დ
“Majestic” is the word that immediately leapt to mind when I saw the first photo. Thank you for sharing this majestic place with us, Cindy.
Thank you so much more for traveling with me Liz. You make the experience better! Take good care დ
You’re most welcome, Cindy!
There is still no snow! Lol…
Every few nights it snows, and the mountain tops and high trails are covered with spun sugar დ
For them it”s to be so.🙂
Enjoy your trip!🌹
Thank you & cheers to you დ
You are right, it is gorgeous in Autumn. I went as far as Calgary once to attend a wedding of my daughter’s friend.
You live in a magical land დ
I was in Alberta almost 50 years ago, stayed mainly in Calgary and did not see these wonderful autumn scenes that you have captured. Thank you!
I am so happy that you enjoyed them & thank you for letting me know დ
Beautiful pictures, Cindy. I’ll bet there’s some eye-popping color coming your way!
More & more everyday! Thank you my friend & be well დ
Keep those pictures coming. I’m a HUGE fan!
Awwww…… Thank so much! Helps keep me motivated დ
I live in Canada, but I’ve never been to Alberta. Canada is huge, so there are lots of places worth visiting, but it’s just difficult to get there.
Always a pleasure to look at your captures!
Thanks so much Inese. You live in such a vast and beautiful country. I have been working steadily to get to as much of it as I can. It is a wonderful task. I am being more conservative though with travel now due to covid which is sad დ
Thank you John & be well დ
Thanks for the lovely peek at early fall colors in Alberta. The colors remind me of Colorado and the Rockies, except they have Aspen trees that turn yellow. Enjoy Cindy!
I love the aspen groves in Colorado when they all turn bright yellow. So beautiful! Be well Brad დ
Thanks Cindy. Hopefully, we’ll have a colorful autumn.
What beautiful pictures!
Have a wonderful weekend, dear Cindy, and stay safe!
Vielen Dank meine liebe Freundin Martha. Bleiben Sie auch sicher und gesund დ
Lovely landscape photography, dear Cindy!
Honored. Thank you very much Phil დ
Wow! What spectacular scenery. Fall is my favorite season to travel just about anywhere, but especially if it involves leaves changing colors.
Yes. We are in complete accord. Thanks much & take good care Janis დ
So beautiful! Happy fall to you from Texas!!
Cheers back to you in beautiful Texas & thank you both დდ
You do manage to find yourself in places of heaven, don’t you? 🙂 Incredible views and photos, Cindy. Wishing you a glorious autumn.
So wonderful to hear from you Randall! How is the family? Cheers to all of you დ
Joyful!!Your photos capture the real essence of the area1
Makes me happ you think so & thank you very much დ
Grazie mille Eliza დ
Oh I love larches, Cindy! Wonderful captures. We have some in our area and they should be turning soon!
I envy you. They are such delicate and hardy trees. Beautiful harbingers of winter დ
larches are still doing Ok here but I can feel it in the air… today I pulled out the warm vest… and there is no going out without long sleeves now. great pictures!!!
Yes! We went up high and got caught in a snowy blow. I took pictures of the snow falling and storm on the peaks. So beautiful the next morning with the snow on the mountains and trails დ
A beautiful part of the world Cindy
Yes indeed! დ
“until I found the mountains
where trees grew by themselves,
there to greet the first men
with thoughts expressed by rock
Where flowers burst like songs
from tongues of stones.”
Sid Marty, writer/poet born Medicine Hat
I LOVE Alberta autumns. A wonderful post, Cindy
How moving! I love Medicine Hat and Alberta. Each day the colors get more amazing. The air feels different. Everything in the forest is quiet. Waiting. Winter in tip-toeing in. Cheers to you Rebecca დ
Vielen danke mein leiber Freund Marie დ
The Larch! We have a larch behind our house. : )
Lucky you! I love them!!! I have taken so many photos of them, massing up mountainsides and individually. Such delicate and beautiful trees დ
And now for something completely different… always comes to mind ; )

So grateful for friends like you Sharon. Take care and be well დ
Color indeed! It’s so vivid. Beautiful shots, Cindy. Hugs on the wing.
Hugs & cheers flying back to you Teagan დ
Beautiful photos, as always. We recently spent 4 days along the Big Sur coast at the New Camoldoli Hermitage (Lucia, which is really not anywhere). I think you would like this place. I’ll be posting photos and poems soon. Enjoy an electronic sabbatical. – Oscar
I know the Lucia Lodge! It is a classic indeed and such beautiful country. Enjoy! დ
We were overlooking the lodge about 800 up the slope. Unfortunately, the restarting had a fire last year is currently replaced with a food truck (though the staff said it was good, but then the next meal options would be Gorda, south, or Big Sur proper, north. Fortunately, the meals at the hermitage were simple, home cooked style.
This gorgeous part of the central coast has trouble with fire, and then with landslides. But it survives….Thank God! Enjoy! დ
I will be writing about wildfire, with images from Limekiln State park, which boarders the hermitage.
So beautiful there.
How beautiful are these? And why did I think you were Canadian?
The air has cooled quite a bit in the Montreal area, this morning a chilly 6℃ (43℉). We are seeing signs, too.
We’ve been getting snow and storms. We were in an impressive one while hiking. Beautiful. I love Montreal, beautiful and such incredible food! დ
Wow… Alberta is that kind of province!
Montreal does rock 😉
It’s coat weather.
Down coat! We getting up in elevation and there has been lots of snow storms დ
Gorgeous! Looks like an awesome expedition!
P.S. I met a woman from Calgary last week who still has family there – she said it’s already cooler!
Enjoy the weather and the beauty…
We are up the mountains from Calgary and there are snow days and nights! Gorgeous though. Cheers to you and yours Sheila დ
Beautiful full of greens!
The beautiful color of Mother Nature დ
A beautiful way to start my day!
Makes me happy! Cheers to you Patty დ
