Friday Flashback: Canadian Rockies

I usually do my flashbacks with fiction, but since I've shared a lot of fiction in the last two weeks, I thought I'd toss out an old photo post from 2014. (For anyone who's wondering, I'm too lazy this week to the Grand Canyon Part 6. Check next Friday!)
     This was part of my A to Z which I think was themed around mountains. The trip that is documented here was in summer of 2013. We spent a month in the Banff/Jasper/Kootenai area, all of it camping and backpacking.


Here's the original post:

Just a few of my favorite shots from Banff and Kootenay National Parks, and Mt. Robson Prov. Park.

The classic view of Moraine Lake, Banff National Park
Mt. Robson and Berg Lake, Mt. Robson Provincial Park, British Columbia.
Hiking near Snowbird Pass, Mt. Robson in the near distance. 

Hoary marmot
Some lunch counters are better than others.  The Rockwall, Kootenay National Park

Get up early.  No one saw this but us, as the sun rose on Floe Lake, Kootenay National Park

What teens do--scream defiance at a world way too big for them.  Emperor Falls, Mt. Robson Prov. Park

When you finish hiking, hijack an ice cream truck

At the time I posted this in 2014, Death By Ice Cream had just come out! Now there are 5 books and a novella in the series, all available as paperbacks, Large Type paperbacks, and ebooks. And I've pretty much had to give up eating ice cream :(

There was a link on the old post to this interview I did when the book came out on the blog of Carla Sarett. My thoughts on writing and self-publishing have matured some, but the interview basically captures what I like to do.


  1. I can take flashbacks like that.

    1. Good memories. Hard to believe that was 8 years ago!

  2. Stunning pictures. What a wonderful world we live in. Thanks for showing this.

  3. Hi Rebecca - how stunningly beautiful ... with happy memories for you - you've been able to take some magnificent hikes in our wonderful world. Gorgeous photos - while your book 'Death by Ice Cream' sounds an interesting take on ice-cream ... cheers Hilary
