Earth Day

Earth Day 2021


 
What better way to celebrate Earth Day than with these beautiful young ferns and lily of the valley leaves from the Pacific Spirit Park yesterday that remind us every day how precious and magnificent our world is.
 

 
Thank you also to all the children who honored the earth today with their beautiful painted rocks which we enjoyed on the Salish Trail in the Pacific Spirit Park this morning.
 

 
Thank you also to Greta Thunberg @gretathunberg who represented them and all of us speaking so eloquently and passionately to the US Congress today. And thank you to Amanda Gorman who has inspired us once again with her moving and beautiful poem Earthrise. The Earth could not have better champions who give us all such hope.

 

in this together

 

Written in chalk beneath a rainbow on the entrance to Tatlow Park here in Vancouver these words are perhaps the perfect way to recognize this 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. We are indeed all in this together.

Since this is also National Park Week, and following my look back to Antelope Canyon, I thought I would re-post our visit to magnificent Bryce Canyon five years ago today together with the painting that it inspired.

From the wonder and awe of the magic of Antelope Canyon to the breathtaking majesty of the vistas of Bryce Canyon. It has been another unforgettable day and once again I will let the pictures do all the talking…

…the final shot at the end of a perfect day.

Earth Day 2019


 

This landscape painted over thirty years ago has stood the test of time I think.
Let’s all work to make sure our planet does the same.
