Hello everyone. Happy Wednesday. So very nice to have you here, as always.
My husband and I took a very quick trip down south last weekend, to some land near Waterton National Park in our Province of Alberta. The day was stunningly beautiful; very sunny with a little stormy cloud. Wind was blowing as it always seems to be.
It’s the undiscovered country, it really is. So few people are even aware of the beauty that lies in southern Alberta.
Chief Mountain looms large on the horizon – it is located in the State of Montana and is a highly sacred and powerful place to the Blackfoot Confederacy.The mountain is said to have mystical power; a force that is highly palpable. I love being close by.
Wetlands border Chief Mountain….home to so many different species of birds.
One of my favourite places is a church that is basically in the middle of nowhere. The door is left unlocked for anyone who wishes to look around inside. The church is very dark inside now, as the windows have been boarded over, but there are still four or five small rows of benches and religious pictures adorning the walls. There is a guest book to sign.
It has a small cemetery attached in the church yard and it is a privilege to wander around the grounds.
It is so wonderful to take a break sometimes, to treasure and admire what nature offers us each and every day. Beauty, tranquility and peace.
