One Last Look Back In Time

For the post I want to share some amazing scenery shots that Jake has taken,many years back.


This I believe is Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies.This is a very picturesque place and many photos of this lake show up on calendars.


Yes,I have been to Yellowstone Park,but it's been much too long ago.I do believe this is Yellowstone Falls.This would have been taken around 1968 or 69. My parents took our family to Yellowstone and Jake Hiebert,who was a friend of my Dad went along.This was before I had any interest in him.That sounds so strange to me now,but that's how it was.


These pictures are kind of all over the place.This was taken on our honeymoon,in 1972. The weeping wall is a fascinating place. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe this is in Glacier National Park in Montana.


I have to be honest and admit that I have no idea when or where this picture was taken,but I do know that I love it.I have used this picture many times as my desktop photo.


Once again,I cannot give a date when this was taken,but I do know where it is. This is one of my favourite places to be,especially in spring,the Pembina Valley. I think Jake has proven,with this shot,that it can be beautiful in fall as well. The low lying fog certainly adds to this scene.

So that has been a series of looking back into the archives,way back,before the digital age. I am pleased to have been able to share these photos with you. Going through them has brought back so many memories of the man who stole my heart.
I trust that these images help you to see the beauty that God has created for us to enjoy.

  14. Hi Ruth, Exactly as you said, these images help us see the beauty that God has created. Jake's photography is excellent. Yes, the weeping wall is in Glacier and isn't that a great shot! Wonderful picture of the Great Falls of the Yellowstone. The first photo absolutely should have been submitted for a calendar. :-) Thanks for sharing these and I hope we will see more of Jake's work in the future. John

  29. Дивовижні фото! Я захоплююся американськими національними парками із моменту, коли вперше побачила їх в географічних довідниках! Велична краса каньйонів і річок! Мрію коли-небуть побачити цю красу на власні очі!
