Wow. you are hard to follow Renata. Beautiful shots. I love Graffiti and the fact that the developer opened the are to street artists is fantastic to me. Your tour is awesome. Keep the shots coming.
As for my own tour. Life has been really busy and I haven't edited enough but here is a the last few shots from Sunday's drive. The first shot is of Duffy lake which is the namesake of the road that I am on(which was a beautiful winding road through the mountains). The second is of Seton Lake Reservoir. Standing on the dam that created it.

After a day of driving the light started to fade and entered a gap in the big mountains of the coast and the Rocky Mountains. It became much dryer and the terrain became more hilly then mountainous. Just before I called it a night I pulled over in a remote road as the sky was clear and the stars were vibrant. Nifty took some night shots before calling it a day and finding some sleep.
Trever, thank you.
I applaud the developer to have opened the area to street artists; it makes it vibrant and wonderful. Deep Ellum has a unique personality that is very charming. Not only the graffiti adorns that area. It attractst some small businesses owned by young people. The food they serve in small gorgeous bistros is very healthy and there is not a single chain restaurant. Big YAY to that. I ate a spectacularly healthy sandwich made of home made bread but couldn't photograph in there because the place was very dim. Nifty was not up to that challenge focusing in poor light.
Your landscapes are majestic. Love them all. I wish I could go back to Canada to follow your footsteps. A few years ago we went all across Canada but the kids weer still relatively young and grumpy after hours of driving. We flew back a few times to various places such as Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and all over Quebec but again, we had the kids with us and it was tough at times
Keep your shots coming but take your time, please. I know how daunting the task is to be a good and diligent host
