This past week, we left on Monday to take my cousin to Alberta for a medical appointment.

My hope was to maybe get a drive through the Canadian Rockies, but that would have added too many hours to the trip.

We had a wonderful drive west with my cousin and shared many laughs along the way.

We were blessed with very good fortune in many ways, not the least being that we arrived in Medicine Hat, Alberta just a few hours after a tornado struck there. Someone was definitely watching out for us.

My feature photo is of Edmonton, Alberta – taken from the front window of the car. Hubs had just cleaned the windshield, so it made for a nice clear capture. Yay hubs!

I did some post processing on the original photo (below)

Photography Note: I did a bit of a crop, and used the perspective tool in my native photos app to straighten the tall building on the right. I then used the touch/retouch app to remove that wispy trail top left.

“Every person needs to take one day away. A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future. Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence. Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”
