I need a Christmas card for a card exchange on Sunday, and in my search for subject matter my mind leapt back to the Christmas card perfect scenery we saw in 2012 at Miette Hot Springs in the Alberta Rockies. It was the first snowfall of the year, a good dump of the white stuff, and we were fortunate to be there from snowfall to snow melt.
The hot water created this unusual combination.
Snow all night, accumulating quickly!
The lovely flower boxes and baskets were completely hidden.
The rugged mountain scene – just off the paved path the pools, but don’t tell!
My favourite, snow gobs on every bough.
Driving out, after the road had melted down a bit. And down the mountain… no snow at all!
