Amethyst flower

We had just gone for a hike in Goldstream park. Up to the top of a “mountain” and across a giant and high train bridge. Have you ever seen the movie Stand By Me? Well that kind of train bridge. It was pretty awesome. Anyways, at the bottom there is a creek that empties out every spring. You can follow the path that was left from water to a beautiful waterfall. B.C. seems to be filled with waterfalls. On our way through the barren path there is little flowers growing all over the place. I love this on it is so beautiful. The center of the flower looks like a deep purple Amethyst jewel. A little glimmer of color on the rocky path.

Happiness is like a butterfly.  

The more you chase it, the more it eludes you.  

But if you turn your attention to other things,

 It comes and sits softly on your shoulder.  

 – Henry David Thoreau
