ALBERTA BOUND: This province of ours is pretty stunning if I do say so myself. Grass grows in the ditch at the Gleichen East rest stop (top), the same place where the Trans Canada Highway is surrounded by cattails (middle left). Calgary glows in the distance coming in from the east as Saturday night traffic head for the city limits (middle right). Little blooms fill the ditches like these Senecio flowers (bottom left) and are found in a place that proves Alberta is called big sky country for a reason (bottom middle). And pretty things don’t have to be obvious, like this little potato beetle who was one of hundreds munching down in Medicine Hat (bottom left).
