We're up in Panorama near invermere for a week's hiking in the Purcells but, owing to a really shitty injury on day one, have spent the whole time walking and sitting quietly by gorgeous Toby Creek, way up the valley, taking in the beautiful sound of the river and the steady warm breeze from Jumbo Valley. Man, that's healing, really lifts one's spirits and quiets your thoughts ..... until..... a small group of folks with music blasting discovered my 'secret spot' by the river
Yeah, what a downer, but we started to chat with the kids. They were really nice and just sort of shut things off when we talked about how great it was to get up here, on your own, to take in the river and listen to it. Sometimes it just takes awareness.
