I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
Another lovely day in the mountain parks of Southern Alberta.
Peter Lougheed Provincial Park
Columbian Ground Squirrel
Wild Roses, Alberta's provincial flower
Baby ground squirrels
It was hard to quit taking pictures of these little cuties!
Sticky Purple Geranium
Male and female Mountain Bluebirds peek down at us from a utility pole
Tree Swallow checking things out
Mushrooms at our lunch spot. Maybe Shaggy Manes?
Sheep River Provincial Park
Canada Buffaloberries, found along the roadside.
All in all, it was a great day.
