Southern Alberta Foothills, Spring 2010

As part of my work, I was driving from the Southeast BC coalmines back to the Calgary Airport. I love to take Highway 22 and was hoping to get some good light. Leaving Sparwood a bit before sunrise, I scouted the backroads (especially the Burmis Road just west of Highway 22) and was rewarded with some lovely early morning light, and a fresh spring dusting of snow on the mountains.

 

This area of foothills where the prairie meets the montane is one of my favourite spots, and I always look forward to this drive.

 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia…

 

The Livingstone Range is a mountain range located primarily in Glacier National Park in the U.S. state of Montana, and in the extreme southeastern section of the Canadian province of British Columbia. The range is 36 miles (58 km) long and 28 miles (45 km) wide.
