This gorgeous wooden walkway/boardwalk thing runs all around the marsh, since it's a very delicate eco-system, this allows people to view the marsh and the springs without endangering the species that live there.
It also happens to be a fantastic place to run
This white stuff is actually a type of moss that can grow in the hot sulphury water. It is a very important source of nutrition for the animals and insects that live in the marsh.
That's me having a meditative moment by the basin
The hot springs are so hot that even the winter frost doesn't get to it and it remains green and lush in the immediate vicinity of the springs for most of the winter
The boardwalk. It's so beautiful out there. On my runs I feel like I'm the only person in the world. It's amazing.
The boardwalk branches off into these little viewing areas
This bird blind is another view point that juts out from the main boardwalk
The Bow River!! It's everywhere!
I can't resist climbing out on fallen trees.
Yup, this is where I live!!
Its just ALWAYS this beautiful!!
I know I had more things I wanted to blog about but I've clearly forgotten all about them. More later!!
