Beauty Everywhere

Great forests, high and lofty mountaintops
covered with glaciers, expansive lakes,
abundant wildlife, turquoise wild rivers,
we have seen it all on our vacation.

It's been a good break from old routines,
a time to commune with God’s creations.
Hiking, picniking, traveling in new areas
it's summertime in British Columbia.

Canada, a land of such natural beauty,
filled with diverse peoples and many tourists
grouped in families of different kinds.
Some alone following their own path.

Each on a journey to find meaning and
purpose. Individuals coming together,
working, playing, and vacationing.
Recreating and interacting as they travel.

I'm with Dellgirl. I'd have set up a homestead until the snow started to fly.
