A picture is worth a thousand words

A picture is worth a thousand words
When I moved from Saskatchewan to Alberta almost eight years ago, I was already entranced by what this area has to offer and how beautiful it is.

Living here has had only one major drawback — the distance I now reside from my family and lifelong friends.

Every trip home, someone inevitably asks when I’m moving back. My group of elementary school girlfriends have come up with many enticing scenarios and reasons why they think I should do just that.

While I’m a road warrior by nature and don’t mind the long drive from one home to the other, they aren’t quite as adventurous. When I try to describe the things I love about living here, I know they don’t really get it.

One of my favourite things is to cruise the backroads. There are so many interesting and beautiful things to see, and repeat trips through the same area always seem to reveal something different. In all directions, one can enjoy nature and history. I’m not sure which is more fascinating.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words. These shots, most taken by my daughter, Jaiden, show how much there is to see and appreciate on an after-work drive in the sunshine.

This is a clipping I will forward to my friends. Perhaps they will see a small part of what I see.

Can you guess which road we travelled that evening?
