During the third week in April I flew to Calgary, Canada to see the late winter in the Canadian Rockies.


I started in Kananaskis Provincial Park southwest of Canmore (southwest of Banff) and worked my way northward through Banff National Forest, Yoho National forest and an area 90 miles northeast of Lake Louise called the Kootenay Plains Natural Area where Abraham Lake is located.


One of my Flickr friends "Joalhi" has been there so many times and has a superb collection of the entire range of the Canadian Rockies in all seasons. As a matter of fact, she's there now. She has one of the most unique shots of "Morants Curve" in the winter...just beautiful which inspired me to drive along the Bow Valley Parkway and stop by that area for my own composition of the site.


My timing was perfect. After I parked and crossed the road and guard rail, I could hear the conductor pulling on that loud horn. I could tell it was still far in the distance so that I had more than enough time to set up. Five minutes later, which seemed like an eternity, she came by at a very slow pace.


The three mountain peaks in the background on the right from right to left are Fairview, Saddle, Sheol. The two on the left are Mount Temple and Pinnacle Mountain and Eiffel Peak.


Time to chill out. Here's Roger Shah presenting Sunlounger featuring Antonia Lucas in the

song Beautiful Night. I kinda like the way this song starts out .. it has that chug, chug, beat.


If you right click on the highlighted link and select "Open Link In New Tab", you can listen to the music as you review your Flickr photos. For you Mac owners, if you hold down the "control" key and click on the url, you'll be able to select "Open link in New Tab".


Check this grizzly Youtube vid out ... pretty's incorrectly named as it is not a grizzly attack but still I don't think I'd play around with this character:
