The Four Day Getaway

A week’s holiday did not materialize as planned.  We only had three and a half days.  We had been planning a golf and wine tour of the BC interior for some time.  Similar to a weekend two years ago, when we went to Whitehorse for dinner and a movie, this time it was Armstrong for lunch and a golf game.  It was a lovely time, though much too short.  The golf game was fun, in spite of rain on the last two holes and dinner with a classmate from seminary was great.  On the return trip we stopped in Prince George and picked up a Boler trailer that my sister had purchased.  DSC_0066

Here it is pictured at a stop we made at Bijou Falls.

We were so impressed that we had to stop for a while and take pictures.  Even these do not do the scene justice.

Beyond Bijou Falls we had some amazing views of the last of the Rockie Mountains as we crossed the Pine Pass and then headed east to Chetwynd.

      It was amazing. I never realized until I took this picture that the colours of the bottom rainbow are reversed from the rainbow above. At least in this case it was. We have really changed our attitude towards travel. We are not so much in a hurry to get there, but much more inclined to enjoy the entire trip.

    The rainbow pictures are marvellous! What beautiful scenery!

  3. What beautiful country! I’m retiring in September and can’t wait to begin taking road trips to discover the beauty in the various regions of the U.S. & Canada. I live in Florida which has its own special beauty, but yearn for new vistas. Thanks for sharing.

      If driving the Alaska Highway is on your bucket list, these will be the vistas you encounter. Come visit, it is fabulous country. Congrats on your upcoming retirement. What a blessing.
