I made a quick drive through stop in Canmore and Banff, two places I would have liked to have spent more time in, visiting people and exploring the towns. It seems I will have to do this trip again at a more leisurely pace.
There was a brooding, mysterious mood to the mountainous drive yesterday. Very little traffic and these majestic beings appearing and disappearing around me as I drove through them. Their physical presence is so overpowering and always remind me how small and insignificant we are as individuals. I had a similar feeling when I visited the groves of Redwoods in California. Although all of the earth is holy, one feels on sacred ground here.
I stopped beside the Kootenay River to just listen and gaze at this crystal cold clearness. I love rivers and this one was so alive and pure, you could see all the river pebbles just below the surface of the rushing water.
