Muted fall colors, (click to enlarge)

and pale powder rivers.

Canada is gorgeous,

in every season,

but fall’s,

subtle splendor,

takes your breath away,

as does a gregarious gray jay!

Cheers to you from Yoho National Park in the fall~

“The Tonic of Wildness..”


“We need the tonic of wildness.” Henry David Thoreau


“It is not what you look at that matters, but what you see.”


“All good things are wild and free.”


He may be broken, but he is not defeated.


Next season he may survive to fight again and win his harem.


But until then he is alone.


“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”


Photos taken the last few days in Yoho and Banff National Parks.

Quotations are all Henry David Thoreau.

Hope you take some time to go, “Where the Wild Things Are,” (Maurice Sendak).

Like Thoreau, you may just find your real self.

Cheers to you from our cabin in the Canadian Woods!
