We left the smoky Okanagan Valley and had a very continuously smoky drive until we reached Jasper National Park …
… where the rain started, lots of it. The atmosphere certainly needed a good cleaning, and I hope this rain was a big help toward dousing some of these wildfires we have.
Happy Monday. 🙂

It is good to see the rain anywhere these days Lynette. We got 4 drops here overnight. It is finally cooling down, so looking forward to the slide into fall. Safe travels. Allan
We drove through a lot of rain on our way north, and I understand the summer here wasn’t very good at all, cool and rainy. At least there were no fires. The Okanagan is supposed to get rain this week, fingers crossed.
Welcome to Alberta! 😊
Thank you! 🙂
Yay, rain! It has cooled and dried a bit here in New England, with more pleasant sleeping weather. Our skies are still hazed with western smoke, though. I’m picturing steam as rain hits the burning land – one can only hope!
We need rain so badly! So many of the western parts of Canada and U.S. are on fire. There is supposed be rain this week; I really hope it arrives!

Thank you for letting me know. That’s so strange as it showed up under my comment to you. WP glitchy-time, I guess!
Mysterious and beautiful. Lovely.
Thank you. 🙂 It’s really beautiful driving through rainy mountains.
The rain is so refreshing when it comes to areas with drought and fires and smoke.
We drove through a lot more rain today, too, and it was so cool after all the heat! I hope that’s the trend for more southern parts, too. The southern Okanagan is forecast to have lower temperatures and rain this week; I really hope that happens.
We had twenty drops of rain two days ago, and no more in sight, but at least it’s cooler.
That will at least help some.
Let’s all hope this will put out those fires.
Oh yes! My dear Okanagan is supposed to get cooler temperatures and rain this upcoming week.
I’ve been on that stretch of road and I hope to be again once everything calms down a little bit.
Thank you. 🙂 It’s so beautiful, as you know. I hope you’re able to visit again when you’re ready.
It’s amazing how the rain can make such a huge difference sometimes. We finally got some rain last night and our flowers are less droopy and the lawn is already starting to look a bit greener. Hopefully the rain has helped control some of the wildfires.
Very true – even a little can go a long way. It’s supposed to be cooler with more rain into next week – I hope the forecast is accurate!
Your photos remind me of ones I took in Western Montana durning drizzle. My husband and I were moving from Tampa, Florida to Portland, Oregon in June of 1992. Good memoriesx
I’m glad that they triggered good memories for you. Thanks for commenting. 🙂
Misty mountains are some of my favorite views! I love the pictures.
Thank you very much. 🙂
It was very pretty. 🙂
