Beautiful colouring on the plumage of this pair of hummingbird chicks is becoming more obvious. It helped that the sun was in the right place to highlight the subtle colours this morning.

Maybe the young chicks will try a test flight tomorrow?

Our trip down Joseph Creek began at Idlewild.
Here some of us examine horsetail (wasa),
Which the Giant used to save Coyote
When he fell into the river
While hunting the Water Monster
According to the Ktunaxa Creation Legend.

Idlewild Lake used to be Cranbrook's reservoir
Until the mid 1970s.
Now there is a draw down
To reduce the water level
So that repairs can be made to the dam.

Nearby we saw this giant bald eagle,
Which is one of many metal sculptures
In someone's garden.
We were fortunate to be allowed
To walk through the garden
And check out all the amazing structures.

We had a last look at Joseph Creek
Before leaving town
And heading downstream to where it meets
The St. Mary River.
We wonder what the Iron Woman would think
About how the creek looks?

This is the confluence
Where Joseph Creek flows into the St. Mary River.

This is the St. Mary River
Close to where Joseph Creek meets it.
Not far downstream St. Mary River flows into
The Kootenay River near Ft. Steele.
