I have my Mum visiting me at the moment - she wanted to see if Canada did any colour other than white because last Christmas when she came to stay we had snow on the ground for the entire 6 weeks (she thought that was bad until I explained to her that I had it for an entire 6 months)!!
So before all the leaves fell off the trees we took her along the road to Kananaskis and visited Elbow Falls.
It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and the leaves were lovely shades of gold.

and we found this little squirrel in a fir tree munching on pine needles...
Mum and Chris - the trees were fabulous.
I always find it so surprising that I can drive 10 minutes out of Calgary and be surrounded by such beautiful scenery...
