A Walk Down Memory Lane 2

As we continue our walk down memory lane,a place where we look at Jake's old slide scans,let's take a walk through some mountain scenery.
Some of these pictures I have no idea where they were taken,
so just enjoy the scenery.

The next picture is a black and white rendition of a
scene taken at the Grand Teton Mountains in Wyoming. A perfect reflection.
This one was taken in the Canadian Rockies during a forest fire.
The following picture is the Columbia Ice Fields in the Canadian Rockies.
I do believe this one is looking down on the Lake Louise area in Banff,Alberta.
I regret not having exact locations for each one.
Many of these pictures were taken before I was part of Jake's life.
The Bible verse found in Job 37:14 says it all.
Stop and consider the wondrous works of God.

Wonderful scenery photos! Worthy of postcards.

Leedra said...

All of the photos are great, but you know I love reflections, so I really like them. But I also like old fences, so that b&w view through the old fence it great too.

There has been so much beauty in your life together as these pictures show. So lovely for you to have them still. I really miss ours first quarter century of married life, the record of which went up in smoke in the great bushfire of 1983.

All of these pictures are absolutely gorgeous. I especially like the reflections in the water. I really have to get to work on scanning my old slides.

Oh my goodness - such BEAUTY! Looks like a line up for a calendar! I just LOVE the black & white - would frame that and hang it up immediately! And the reflection shot is outstanding!

Beautiful, Ruth! You should walk on this lane more often (and Jake should sell a calendar)!

Becky said...

Where ever they were taken, they are truely beautiful. Those reflections of the water are unbelievably clear too. Each one would make a spectacular painting!
I just love seeing scenery from your part of the world.

When I was in high school, part of my family (mom, dad and two sisters and I) drove from Buffalo NY, to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. We spent time in Grand Teton National Park. It was one of my favorites places. I always wished I could get my kids out there. It truly is so beautiful, and your photo's bring all of that back to me.
Ruth, Thank you so much for leaving your thoughts on my site. You are such an encouragement to me.

When we look at beautiful shots of nature like this, how can anyone doubt that there is a Creator? Such beauty and splendor!
