|Most of the photos on this page were taken in Canada's Yoho National Park,
one of four contiguous parks located in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. It's
situated along the western slope of the Continental Divide in British Columbia.
There are, also, a few images from neighboring Banff National Park.
"Yoho" comes from a Cree word, meaning "to express amazement."
Judging from the beautiful scenery displayed in these photos, it's not
hard to imagine why the name Yoho was applied.

|When adults look at a patch of dandelions,
they see weeds trying to take over their lawn.
Children see flowers for Mom and
blowing white fluff you can make a wish on.
When adults feel the wind on their faces,
they try not to let it mess up their hair.
Children close their eyes, spread their arms
and happily run to meet it.
When adults approach a mud puddle,
they see muddy shoes and dirty carpets.
Children see water to splash in,
dams to build and rivers to cross.
I wonder...are we given children to teach
or to learn from?
I wish you, my friends, a lifetime of big mud
puddles and sunny yellow dandelions.

|Photo from National Geographic shows a couple - plus a friend - in Banff
National Park. They set their camera's auto timer and sat down to pose,
when a curious squirrel came to examine the camera just as it snapped the
picture. I hope they got his address so they could send him a copy. :-)
