Skywatch Friday

This week's Skywatch feature is this first view I got of a snow capped June!!! I saw my first serious mountain range, the Canadian Rockies, when I traveled to Kelowna and Vancouver with my Sweetheart back in 2007 and by serious, I mean mountains that are big enough and high enough that you can ski on them pretty much year round. We have a mountain range here in Quebec, the Laurentians, but they've got a a couple of million years on the Rockies, so they've had time to get worn down by the elements over the year and only have snow on them from about November to April if you don't count the odd flurry in October and May.

To see more Skywatch pictures from around the world, check out the Skywatch Friday blog.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. A wonderful scene! Soaring mountains are so inspiring!

  2. Makes me homesick, Karine. I grew up in Kelowna, and spent my working life in the Vancouver area. Beautiful shot. Thanks!
