Relaxing Weekend in Canmore

When the weather forecast took a turn for the worse overnight Friday, we set aside our plans for a hike and decided to enjoy some pure rest and relaxation instead. The boys might disagree with that description, ’cause we dragged them along to the Canmore Studio and Gallery Tour (one of hundreds of events taking place across the province for Alberta Culture Days)…

Active participation
One studio encouraged active participation – acrylic paints on unglazed porcelain tiles. K completed two miniatures (a lake scene and a sunset). He probably would have been content to do another, but he seemed to sense that his big brother wanted to leave!

After visiting 4 studios, it was time for a change of pace and we spent the rest of the weekend reading, playing video games and occasionally heading outside for some fresh air and light exercise, such as…

Tossing the football near Three Sisters
…tossing a football…
Frisbee catch
…and playing a game of Frisbee catch!

Of course, no weekend in Canmore would be complete without some landscape photos…

Mount Rundle
The mountains surrounding the Canmore townsite are mostly coniferous. The few splashes of gold are mostly aspen trees. Location = the unfinished Three Sisters golf course looking west towards Mount Rundle.
The fencing around the greens at the unfinished Three Sisters golf course shows the passage of time and maybe even repeated elk encounters.
