Taking our time. Enjoying a magnificent fall drive to the cabin. Sunshine highlighting the vibrant colours along the way. Stopping for lunch in Hope rather than just driving through. Then on to Manning Park. Bundling up for a peaceful walk around one of the many lakes. Inhaling the crisp mountain air. Light dusting of snow underfoot. Spotting several chipmunks and birds going about their day. Hearing the powerful whoosh of a bald eagle's wings overhead. Stopping briefly at the memorial just because. Breathing through the emotions. Arriving at our destination shortly before dusk. Witnessing a family of deer grazing along the shore. All in all, a glorious day.
