Two Jack Lake Paddler

Banff National Park, Alberta Canada.
At Two Jack Lake we watched this guy take off down the lake on a paddle board on a beautiful morning with low hanging clouds. Nothing unusual about this, except that the guy was maybe in his 80's. How amazing is it that he was out there living his life instead of sitting in a rocking chair somewhere!

You can stay alive for a long time without sitting in a rocking chair. When you remember to look around, you can always expect something new.

What a gorgeous backdrop this makes against the lake! The man adds a nice sense of scale here. What's wrong with a rocking chair? ;-)
