Travel theme: Purple

I decided to try putting together a post for the weekly travel theme from Where’s My Backpack.  This week’s theme is purple, which, to me, is the color of flowers and sunsets.

Accordingly, here is a beautiful pink and purple sunset over Lake Ontario seen while camping at Four Mile Creek State Park near Niagara Falls.

The year that I studied abroad in Chile, there was enough rain in the Atacama Desert for the desert to flower for the first time in several years, resulting in amazing carpets of white, blue, red, and, of course, purple flowers.

And, last but not least, the arrival of a long-awaited spring means beds of tulips on campus, which have several shades of purple to show school pride!
