On The Road

I shared with you about my trip to Red Deer,Alberta and the blessings while there.
Today I want to share a few pictures of the first day on the road.
The pictures were taken through the bus windows and are definitely not top quality.
I share them only because this was what I was seeing as we headed west.Sure wish we could have stopped at a few places to get better pictures,but that was not part of the plan,so this is what I had to settle for.


Travelling through Saskatchewan can often be boring,because the area is often dry and brown.
This year,because of the rains,all was vibrant and green.

Just another sight that caught my eye as we were driving down the highway.


I was surprised by the number of fields of Canola. The landscape looked like a patchwork quilt with lots of yellow patches.


You all know that I love watching the sky and being a passenger on the bus did not change that.
I love those sunbeams coming down,blanketing the world with warmth and light.


We pulled into the hotel at Caronport,Saskatchewan for the first night.
It was fairly early so I had time to walk around and capture a few shots.


I will praise the name of God with a song;
I will magnify Him with thanksgiving.
Psalm 69:30

Ruth, great prairie shots! It's been a few years since I was over that way! I'm always amazed by the land and the size of everything. And how far one can see!

I love the greenish yellow of canola fields, so bright and cheerful. I think the photos turned out well for having been taken through the windows of a bus.

I have never been to Saskatchewan... Only to Alberta, several times, mostly to the Hospital for my Epilepsy treatments and the fields of Canola are always a beautiful sight and also I really enjoy the wind turbine farms which all that we don't get to see up here in the Rocky Mountains... I enjoy reading about your trip. It sounded absolutely wonderful and something that you really needed... ((hugs))

We're just back from having visited good friends in Calgary. We too were surprised at all the green since by July Alberta is usually rather brown and dusty. Great shots, and great text.

Elaine said...

You captured some lovely scenes out the window! Too bad you didn't get to stop, but you take what you can get.

Hilary said...

Those fields look so lovely. I'll bet it was kind of nice to be the passenger for a change.

I think your photos from the bus are very good. I would certainly love to see beautiful Canada in person.

The best thing about a trip is that you can fill up on new sights, sounds, colors and return home renewed. Great shots, Ruth. Diane
