I’ve added six more photos to the Emerald Lake Lodge contest page. Kristen sent the above photo for the contest. She also sent me this message and has given me permission to post it:
“Here’s a photo of my late husband towing our son on a sled on the Bow River trail in Lake Louise. My husband died a couple of years ago of cancer with which he struggled for 8 years. I believe in this photo he’s actually got a bag of chemo flowing into him hidden under his jacket. He had an indominatable spirit, and nothing kept him from enjoying the outdoors with his son. My son Ben went on to enjoy several years of Jack Rabbits skiing. He’s 11 now, and now he skis with me wherever I go. We treasure memories like this that we shared with Brock. We miss him most at Christmas. Although we live life to the fullest and enjoy every day like we’ve woken up to win the lottery.”
A reminder, deadline for entering the Emerald Lake contest is Dec 24 at 11:59 pm.
