LOMAH - Land of Milk and Honey

Just living life here in the Promised Land, Southern Alberta. Where the Mountains meet the prairie in a stunning sunset, surrounded in fields of gold

Kayking - S Bend

An old picture, surfing the S Bend on the Red Deer River with Denali keeping a watchful eye. It was a perfect day, surrounded by perfect friends.

Family in Waterton

A summer hike with the family and Grandparents. It was a typical Waterton day with some wind and sun. Logan hiked the whole way in to Bertha Falls

Loves of my Life

The first two loves of my life together in one picture. I remember when they came into my life, making me whole.

Me in the Broken Group

I think this is my favourite picture from last year. We did a sea kayaking trip to the Broken Group and had 4 glorious days of sun. It was a capped off with the company of great friends.

And her name is...

This past weekend we headed south to Glacier National Park. Surprizingly it's only 152km to the trail head. I comparison, the drive to Cameron lake is 144km. As a result I think we may spend a bit more time down south this year. It helps that I can scam the use of a cabin every now and then.We decided to hike St. Mary's/Virginia Falls which was a nice hike that took a couple of hours. Logan stayed awake for the whole hike up and even scouted some falls with me. We were trying to decide if I could run the drops in a kayak. We figured Chris should try first.
The top was quite spectacular with Virginia falls flowing with enough force to put a fine mist in the air. I sent Dora out for a picture but it took longer than expected to adjust to the lighting. As a result, she got wet, she got mad, I ran away...
We spent the night in Whitefish and did a little shopping at Target. Dora got a running top for her run in two weeks and Logan got a few shirts. Sadly I didn't get anything :(

After that we headed for the great white north! We didn't make it all the way home before we had to stop and feed Logan. It was alright because it gave us a chance to let Denali out for a run.
Logan was enjoying the view and poked his head out of the truck to watch me play with Denali. If you look closely at the picture below you can see half of Logan's 4 teeth!
Oh the the posting title? We finally named our truck. Say hello to Lucy.

When the family is away.....

Dora went for a visit in Kyle, Saskatchewan where her Dad's family is. As a result I was fortuitous to have some time to myself. A perfect opportunity to get some kayaking in! We headed out to the Sheep river for some exciting whitewater. I thought I would post a few pic's of Sheep falls.

Mike M was able to join me for the day. As always it was typical "Manepic" I figure we spent 30 minutes staring at a rapid for every 2 minutes it would take to run it. I guess that's why they say "there are bold kayakers and old kayakers, just not a lot of old, bold kayakers". We managed to escape without any real epic moments with just the usual scraps and bumps. Actually I think it was just me with the scraps and bumps.

In the end I guess it was just what we wanted. I moment in the sun when we felt like perhaps we were a little bold and not so old :)
