Cherry Ong's photos demonstrate how plants are also beautiful when left untouched in their own environment.

"Just returned from a road trip and thought that all the GPODers would enjoy some treaures of the trail while hiking the Fairview Slope Lookout trail at Lake Louise in Banff, Alberta.  There were many interesting and enjoyable hikes we explored while in the area but for your purposes, you might prefer something short and sweet. The first photo is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow - a sweeping view of the gem colored Lake Louise and Chateau Fairmont on its far side."
