Spring tiptoed into the Pacific Northwest this year, clinging to its chilly, rainy wind and daring us to plant gardens or care where our shorts and tank tops had been stored. In May, in the midst of still-freezing nights down in the valley bottoms, we decided to go camping for a week at Premier Lake Provincial Park in the Rocky Mountains. Thankfully, we have a travel trailer so we had a place to dry out and warm up, because nothing was going to keep us off that gorgeous lake in our kayaks!

Valerie Comer’s Sweet Serenade is free through July 7.
Possibly my favorite part of kayaking on mountain lakes is hanging out with the loons.This particular week, they weren’t too companionable but stayed at a distance. One afternoon, though, this guy hung around fairly close for fifteen or twenty minutes.
