Columbia Ice Field

British Columbia

Canada

~~~~~

 I choose Canada’s Columbia Ice Fields as

my subject for this week’s challenge…

 

…as  many of my images also depict greys

among the white snow.

 

While freshly, fallen, silent shrouds of snow

were/are a novelty for this blogger…

…the greyness of many images was also noteable.

rain containing some ice,
as when snow melts as it falls.

Perhaps not quite sleet…

 

…however, freshly falling snow…

 

…certainly contained some ice.

every time I sighted it.

Thankfully, Dr Snip no longer

advertises here.

As the morning progressed

it soon became obvious…

 

…even to those who had never seen

fresh snow, that the surroundings of

Canada’s Columbia Ice-Fields

were covered in a blanket of fresh snow

quirky food

not sure what it is, or even if they do know what it is,
it’s been cooked or presented in a way that’s unfamiliar to them.

Perhaps Black Forest Cake, is not really a quirky food,

however, I had no idea that it would be filled

with layers of cream.

 

The first time someone told us about Beaver Tails

I imagined lots of beavers minus a big fat tail.

It wasn’t until we were up on Grouse Mountain

that I noticed the lack of tail less beavers.

Signage was still advertising Beaver Tails

for consumption though.

It reminded me of a week or so earlier,

after a 14 hour flight from Brisbane we were

directed ‘…go past Tim Hortons…’

in the Vancouver airport.

At least I could envision a Beaver Tail…but

a Tim Horton had me stumped.

One was a tasty pastry while the

other served good coffee.

When the Banff Springs Hotel was built

this was the view from the staff quarters.

This spectacular view is now known as the

Million Dollar View

for good reason.
