A Scenic Drive on the North Cascades Highway- Photo Series

On our way home from our Alaska cruise, we decided to take the scenic route back to Edmonton. Well, it was more of a scenic detour since it wasn’t even close to the normal route we usually take home from Vancouver! Anyone who knows me is aware that I am a stickler for efficiency, and…

  • Alix - Beautiful photos! I’ve never taken that route, but it looks like an amazing drive. Will definitely have to try it out! As my Instagram feed will attest to, I have a thing for turquoise blue alpine lakes and the one in your photos looks like a must see!

  • Sand In My Suitcase - That’s quite a bit of a detour! Normally, you’d drive through Jasper, wouldn’t you? We were so smitten with visiting Jasper National Park last year that we visited again this summer on a family holiday. Your photos are beautiful :-)August 20, 2015 – 10:00 amReplyCancel

Winthrop, Washington- An Afternoon in the Old West!

The agent’s next question was a little odd and caught us off guard. “Why would you want to go there?” he asked with a condescending tone that instantly made us feel silly. “Because it’s a…

Photo of the Week: Elliott Bay Sunset, Seattle

This photo of Elliott Bay was taken from the observation deck of the Seattle Space Needle. The bustling waterfront was calming down for the evening as the setting sun cast a warm, golden glow over the bay. Not only did we get to enjoy this peaceful sunset, but the Space Needle offered great views of…

Photo of the Week: Seattle Space Needle

I just love this unique view of Seattle’s Space Needle. I took this picture from inside the Glass House at the incredible Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit. Framing the Space Needle in this photo, is a suspended 1,400-piece, 100-foot-long glass sculpture, created by artist Dale Chihuly. If you are ever in Seattle, I strongly recommend you…
