Canada's Gospel Music Celebration happens in early July of every year.
2017 will mark the 5th year that I will be attending.I look forward to the music, the morning Chapel services with Leon Throness,and meeting old and new friends.
Today,I share with you a few pictures taken last year on our way to and from Red Deer,Alberta. I wonder what scenes await me this year.
On our travels last year, the sky yielded a never ending display of beauty.
Many,if not all of these pictures were taken from the passenger seat of a moving vehicle. We didn't want to take time to stop all the time, but the beauty needed to be captured on camera as best I could.
While driving along, my friends and I enjoy the uplifting music of many of the artists we are going to hear.The music helps to shorten the many miles of driving.
At a few places, wind turbines dot the landscape. I was lucky enough to capture this scene as we sped on down the highway.
It is 1,487 km or 924 miles, from Morden to Red Deer,so we have lots of time to enjoy the scenery.Last year we went from sunny skies to rain clouds and even some torrential downpours.
Looks like that sky will deliver some more rain. It has already rained as can be seen on the road.
Beautiful rolling hills and farm yards dotting the scene. I used to think that this stretch of road between Manitoba and the mountains in Alberta,was boring, but I have not found that to be the case in these recent years.
So,until I return from the music festival, there will be no more posts to this blog.
For those that follow me on Facebook,I will likely be posting some updates there.
I will also not be commenting on any blogs until I return.
Keep calm and listen to Southern Gospel - the music with an eternal difference.
