One of the most peaceful and relaxing places in the world is Panorama, British Columbia. To be there is to escape the bustle of life, the noise, the hurry. It isn't hard to find yourself completely alone with only the sound of the trees straining under the weight of the snow. It isn't unusual to encounter a moose or a lynx and every cross-country skier or winter hiker that you run into is open to a friendly chat. Days end with warm drinks around a fire, board games with friends and family, or hot tubs under the stars. This photo was taken right outside our front door as the sun was rising over the mountains. What a view to wake up to!
