David Thompson Highway and Crimson Lake

 
Heading homewards from our holidays
we took the David Thompson Highway.
 
 
This highway just continues with the breathtaking views.
 
 
It was probably a good thing that there weren't a lot of places to pull over and stop
or we may have never reached our destination!

 
The stunning mountains, lakes and forests
kept my camera clicking.

 
It was such a beautiful day to take this drive
with clear blue skies and not a whisper of wind.

 
Our poor pup got so tired he fell asleep looking out the window! lol :D

 
Once we reached Crimson Lake Provincial Park
we unloaded our kayaks.

 
It was such a beautiful evening.

 
And the lake was just the right size to kayak around.

 
Lilypads and loons!
The call of the loon is so hauntingly beautiful.

 
Such a peaceful way to end our holiday.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  4. We live on the coast and do all of our kayaking in the ocean. The lake looks like a beautiful place to paddle.

    1. My daughter goes to school on the coast and is planning on doing her internship there this summer. We are hoping to take a holiday there to visit during the summer and maybe we can get in some ocean kayaking! It would be fun :)
