On July 5th,I left for Red Deer,Alberta together with three friends.Those who know me,know that I love Southern Gospel Music and the reason for this trip was to attend Canada's Gospel Music Celebration.
We took very little time to stop,except for fuel,meals and short breaks,so most of my pictures were taken through the window of the van and with my iPhone.No,I was not driving while taking pictures.
Warning: This post has more than my usual number of photos,so bear with me.
These pictures are in no particular order.I got a brief look at the Rocky Mountains.
One thing is certain,the ride was not boring.We had good conversation,great music to listen to and amazing views of the ever changing sky.
On our way home,at one point we even spotted this funnel cloud.It was a safe distance away,so all was well.
At one of our quick stops,I even got to capture a few photos of the Tumbleweeds in bloom.
The tinted windows of our vehicle give the skies a different color,but I still like the look.
The next four pictures show some of the interesting and varied skies we saw.
Now,just to prove that I was actually there,here are a few pictures of some of the groups we were blessed to hear and meet.
This first one is Triumphant Quartet.
Here are the Tribute Quartet.
Finally,Ernie Haase and Signature Sound.
It was a wonderful weekend and over too soon.I did miss some of the guys we have seen there before,but perhaps next year they will be there again.Yes the plans are already being made to go again in 2017.
