Midnite Mass The Great Collaspe 2007 Festival Of Trees Grande Prairie.

Midnite Mass The Great Collaspe 2007 Festival Of Trees Grande Prairie.

ugh…. Just thinking back, there is so much I thought of after the fact. Indeed hind sight is 20/20. Things started off very well and I was extremely excited about how the project was coming along.
