Alberta Autumn

Some pictures of the views from my time in Alberta at the retreat. Everyone siad the colours weren't as good this year due to a cold snap at the beginning of October. but I found the views to be wonderful looking across the lake.
The gold band of trees are Tamarack, a species of needled tree thatdrops the needles each winter, a little bit like a cross between a deciduous and an evergreen.

I like the patterning of the leaves on a cement walkway, with a sprinkling of snow in the corner...not too much snow, just a little taste!
