April Showers | Get Inspired Everyday!

April showers indeed, April snow showers! This is the beautiful scenery that I woke up to this weekend. All the bright green grass was turned to white. The sun was peeking out again but it was sure cold. It’s a good thing that I’m making Butter Chicken, our favorite Indian dish. I think we’ll stay inside and eat our warm, richly spiced chicken, enveloped in a creamy tomato sauce with rice and cucumbers on the side, (recipe to come).

Crater Lake and Mount Garfield

Crater Lake and Garfield Peak Trail | Get Inspired Everyday!

Let me start by telling you that the color of Crater Lake is even more mesmerizing when you are there. We still can’t get over the color,  neither one of us has ever seen anything like it before. We first arrived at the rim of the crater at 2 a.m. and there was a stunning reflection of the moon glittering across the surface of the lake. Unfortunately, I didn’t have good enough camera equipment to capture it. The photos turned out totally black with the moon glowing in the sky.

Coastal Adventure | Newport to Coos Bay - Get Inspired Everyday!As we headed south toward Newport we said goodbye to the last of the sun rays. In the morning, we were lucky enough to catch a bit of sun for our walk on the beach. Even though our Newport days were foggy, it was definitely our favorite coastal town in Oregon.  Although, it should be said that we may be partial due to the fact that we discovered two excellent restaurants. I tend to be enthusiastic about anywhere with good eats.

Spring is Finally Here!

Today I just couldn’t resist posting a few photos of Spring. Even though they don’t qualify as an adventure, I wanted to share my Spring excitement with you. Be sure to check back on Friday for the usual weekly adventure.

The crocuses are blooming and the lilacs are budding. I’m so excited to see the green emerging in the landscape. I know that the abundance of summer produce is about to begin. I always get overly excited to go to Farmer’s Market again because everything tastes better when it is freshly picked. In addition to that, the snow in the mountains is melting and in a few weeks we will be able to start hiking some of the mountains closer to the valley.

Miner’s Peak

Miner's Peak

Miner's Peak

It was a phenomenal day in the mountains just west of Calgary in a town called Canmore. Canmore is situated in a corridor created by two mountain ranges running along either side. Overlooking the town are two peaks that are connected by a ridge, Ha Ling Peak and Miner’s Peak.  If you get started in the morning it is pretty easy to do both in a day.
