Athabasca Glacier Icewalks







Athabasca Glacier Icewalks, is part of Jasper National Park, Canada. What I love about hiking - is to look back at that path and think yeah, it was a real struggle but I made it through ok. I am still alive. Doing fine. Kind of like looking at your own life. 

Look at that hike, you will huff and puff ...but when you get to the top it is well worth the view. Hope you can get the perspective and see how steep it truly was and is. My issue with hiking while cold is your getting hot, even starting to sweat but it is so cold that your nose is running ...to many emotions going on. ha. ha!! That all being said it is well worth the stress, the freezing temps and huffing and puffing. Please go, no regrets!!! If you want to see more beyond those ropes you have to pay. Beth ( :

Good Morning, Beth! It is a neat place to hike.. I would be huffing and puffing up the hill too. Great photos, thanks for sharing your trip!

In the limited number of times I"ve visited the glacier, it is amazing how much it has receded. At an early point we could drive up the debris side of the glacier in our own car. that's changed now.

i like that one shot of the ribbon of folks following the trail - looks quite cold and desolate. :)

I normally enjoy cold-weather hiking more than I enjoy hiking in hot weather. But I think I would enjoy this hike in any weather.

Beth, that looks way too cold and desolate for me to participate, little chicken that I am.

I've been on that glacier a number of times. The receding state of it is alarming.

We walked on this glacier too. It was so interesting to see how much it had melted over the decades. Great pictures Beth.

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan ...it was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise ...you drive through the farm …
