Banff National Park

Here's one last set of pictures from my visit to Canada. On my last full day my Mom and I spent the day in Banff National Park. We started off at Lake Louise, then headed over Lake Moraine, had lunch in the town of Banff, and ended our day at Cascade Ponds. It was a very full and fun day and a great way to end my trip. 

It would also be fitting to wish my fellow Canadians a very happy Canada Day!

July 1st also marks the day that we arrived in California from Chile. I can't believe that six years have already passed since then. Today we are moving our family again and we'll be making the drive up to Pismo Beach to work with YWAM  (Youth with a Mission.)

It was a pretty emotional weekend as we had to say goodbye to a lot of dear friends and family. Our church family gave us so much love and support and even surprised us with a going away breakfast. I am nothing but grateful for our community and it has been an honor to be their pastors. 

We are excited for this next step and are eager to see what God has for us. 

Lake Louise
When we got to Moraine Lake we did a short little hike to get to a top viewpoint
an Inukshuk


The view from the top... unbelievable!
Valley of the Ten Peaks



We saw quite a few mountain sheep
Cascade Ponds






Throwing rocks in the water, Liam's favorite thing to do!


As we were driving home I caught this beautiful shot of The Three Sisters
