mountain wildflowers




This past weekend, we went on our camping trip to Lightning Lake at Manning Provincial Park (near Hope). The weather was a bit dodgy at times, and it was slightly colder than we anticipated, but it was still a great trip. I am a bit of a wimpy camper; 2 to 3 nights is my max, anymore than that, then shower facilities are a must. One of the highlights (besides the campsite having real flush washrooms and not those yucky pit toilets... haha), was driving up to one of the mountain peeks and being rewarded with an awesome view of the surrounding area... we also saw lots of beautiful mountain wildflowers along the way. We took... well actually, my husband Roger took lots of pics... so I will have to split them into a couple of upcoming postings!
