I finished "Loopy Lupines" today. If you take the chair lift up to the hiking trails at Sun Peaks you are able to enjoy a variety of different trails around and up to the top of the mountains. Right now, the alpine flowers are in full bloom and it is breath-taking. My favourite hike lately is the West Bowl Trail, which takes you around the mountain to the valley between Tod Mountain and "Top of the World". When I reach that valley.... i take a short hike out to Tod Mountain Lake, and then come back around the other side of the mountain on Gil's Trail. This is about a 3 hour hike, and the colour, the views, the smells the atmosphere are all AMAZING!!! This painting is just a small piece of what I get to experience. I'm glad I can share it.
