a postcard from Joffre Lakes Provincial Park...

Yesterday we hiked where we had never been before... the beautiful wilderness of British Columbia north of Whistler.

With its magnificent glacial peaks, cold rushing streams and turquoise lakes...
this area only became a provincial park in 1996.

Joffre Lakes...there are three of them.
Check them out if you are ever in the area.

Oh...and come with proper footwear.
We saw someone attempting the steep trail with flip flops.
Not a good idea!


  1. Oh the color of that water is magnificent...what makes it so? You're certainly living in a gorgeous part of the world.

  2. Those turquoise waters make my soul incredibly beautiful!!!

  3. What a breathtaking view! Have a lovely weekend!

  4. Gorgeous scenery Judy! My sister and her husband are road tripping to Canada next week. I'll have to have them check out some of your postcards!

  5. Hurrah! You did get out and explore! I just love it when you post an eyeful of BC beauty that I have never seen before. That lake is absolutely gorgeous!

  6. We do live in a beautiful part of the world. I've never seen water the colour of the lakes in our mountains.

  7. What a gorgeous place...I'm a little envious! :-)

  8. I think we live in the most beautiful place in the world. We're looking forward to a little hiking in the Rockies later this month.

    Doesn't that view just make your soul sing?

  9. The water looks so beautiful there! It also looks so nice and cool there, or am I imagining it? We just returned from a two week drive/trip to Colorado. It is very hot and humid tonight in NYC...whew!

  10. WOW that is the most beautiful photo I've seen today! It's like a dream...playing catch up since I'm allowed up 2 hours at a time twice a day now...glad I came by, Judy

  11. One of my favorite spots...color, beauty and ambiance.
