Pictures fromIcelandic Horse World

A picture of me on a wonderful little Icelandic Horse, named Wilnii, and another horse resting his upper lip against the hitching post :D.  It is a beautiful place in British Columbia, with gracious hosts.  I plan on going there again.

A shoetree outside of Prince Rupert, BC

The tree is located on the southern end of Prince Rupert, BC, it was raining so hard I didn't want to get out of my car to photograph it.
The ground squirrel was photographed in Barkerville, a renovated mining town that is about 40 Kilometers past Prince George (south).  It is sort of entertaining to go through it, I was there in 1969 before it was even developed, then again in 1991, and then yesterday, every time it is bigger and better.

TheSun Kissed Challenge

 This a scene done from a photograph taken by Julia Kay, the leader of Julia Kay's Portrait Party on Flickr.  She took it in Inverness, California.  The golden hills of California are definitely kissed by the sunny sun.  I used to live in California, now I live in rainy SE Alaska, so I love looking at the lovely hills of California.  Thanks to The Inspiration Avenue's Weekly Challenge

More Hiking Pictures

A picture of a muskeg pond with water lilies, and two of my companions when we were enjoying a sunny spot on the boardwalk, coming down from the end of the boardwalk.

The sun was out yesterday for the first time in a week, so a group of us women hiked up a mountain.  This is a picture of my feet as I was resting halfway back down.  Many of the hikes here are on boardwalks as the muskeg is so wet that a person can not really "walk" in them.  I am lying on the boardwalk, it was very comfortable after 4 miles of stairs :D.  The whole hike was 8 miles long.
