One of my day trips included a visit to Paradise Meadows
within Strathcona Provincial Park, where I had the undeniable pleasure
of having "Whisky Jacks" (Gray Jays) eat from my hand.
Some scenery en route
The wonderful foliage
A residence adjacent to the Park's information office
A number of boardwalks have sensibly been constructed around the Park
to encourage conservation of the natural groundcovers -
this one was part of the Centennial Trail
Some of that vegetation and funghi
Yet again I found myself sighing deeply with appreciation for the
magnificent surroundings. This was one of the shorter walks (the guide said it would take about 3/4 hour, but it took me twice that time because I kept stopping to take pictures!) -
and I really did have intentions of going back to try some of the longer walks, but . . .
oh well - next time!
