A Walk Down Memory Lane 8

On today's Walk Down Memory Lane,I continue to show you more fall scenes.
The pictures may have been taken years ago,but the beauty is timeless.
A reminder that all these are taken from Jake's old slides.

The next five pictures are at Lake Minniwasta,just west of our town.
Morden gets all it's water from this lake.
Doesn't this just make you feel like going for a walk?
Two more scenes of Lake Minniwasta.
This one is Rainbow Falls in the Whiteshell Provincial Park.
Walking across is our son Steve,obviously taken many years ago.
This is a road through our Pembina Valley.
Yet another thre views of our lake.
A road in the valley.
Here is a picture showing what we enjoy doing,hiking through the woods.
This is me(Ruth) and Steve.
Two more fall lake scenes,this time with some canoes.
I invite you to enjoy the rest of the pictures,without commentary.
Today,look for the hand prints of God everywhere.

Oh Ruth, These are incredible. I love looking at old slides.. Jake did a great job of turning them into digital photos.

When I saw Rainbow Falls---I got excited. Thought I would see a waterfall.... ha

Your area is just marvelous. Wish I could see it in person.

Jake did a wonderful job with these pictures. I really like the pictures of the mist on the lake. It's easy to see why this is a favorite place for you and your family.

Dorothy said...

These are all wonderful photos, but my very favorites are the ones showing the reflections in the lake!

What a wonderful walk Ruth and Jake. I'd like to go right now! BUT it's raining here :( Not too much Fall here yet, but it is sneaking up on us.
Love the fog in the woods shots.
Have a wonderful day.

Ruth said...

We are fortunate to enjoy such variation in our seasons. I like the pictures with the mist on the water. Fall mornings can be so still and lovely.

The leaves are already turning gold on your beautiful lake! Fall is just starting to paint the leaves here, a little later than usual. It seems we are going to be treated to lots of scarlet this year. Each morning I wake to a little more colour. The lake is still warm enough for swimming but the mist each morning is an indication of how much heat is coming out of the water. Soon we will be putting the boats and swim raft away for spring.

Karin said...

Oh what a peaceful and lovely walk down memory lane and around your area! The slides are excellent! Enjoyed my visit. Thanks!

Mary said...

Such beautiful scenery! I would love a walk there or a trip in that canoe. The fall color is really pretty.

April said...

Beautiful memories of a lovely colourful season! Just a fabulous collection!

Looking at the pictures of the Roads brings to mind a 'Power Point" presentation I created a while back, with roads from all over the world (misison pictures). Some had nationals sitting in the middle with their animals, others were roads washed away by storms and others just beautiful paths cut thru the wilderness. I used the song by Point of Grace called "Any Road at Any Cost"

I thought you would appreciate the words:

Leaving the safe and familiar
With their hearts set on a heavenly prize
There were some who laid down their nets
And some who laid down their lives
Not sure where they were going
But they did not have to know
cause they knew who had called them
And they said, we will go

Down any road at any cost
Wherever you lead we will follow
Because we know that youve called us
To take up our cross
Down any road at any cost

It may be fear that were feeling
We see what we must sacrifice
But you promised youll go with us
So well trust with our lives

(repeat chorus)

Its your love that compels us
To do what youve called us to do
And be completely abandoned to you

(repeat chorus)

Because we know that youve called us
To take up our cross
Down any road at any cost

Have a great weekend! I am off to make submarine sandwiches for the High School Band sale today!
