Saturday Wanderings in the Mountains

A quick get away to the mountains of Alberta and British Columbia allows for interesting views in every direction.

Castle Mountain, Banff National Park.

Kootenay National Park.

Traffic delays in Radium, BC.

Sunset over the Columbia Valley.

Late night outdoor swimming in the middle of winter at the pools at Radium Hot Springs. Water temperature was a beautiful +31C in the cold pool…..much hotter in the hot pool.

Mountain Views – Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada

Today I am sharing a couple of mountain views from a recent trip to the coast. The images are from Banff National Park, with the most recognizable picture being of Castle Mountain.

blog castle mountain_0293 aWe seem to spend a lot of time driving through the mountains, and very little time stopping,  simply due to time restraints. I am getting better at taking the odd forced stop to take in a mountain view here or there. Hopefully now that we are on Daylight Savings Time and the days are getting longer, I will have more opportunity for photography in the mountains on our trips out west.

Fire on the Mountain

We passed this spectacle a few hours ago. It is a prescribed burn in Banff National Park ( Alberta, Canada). This is just east of Castle Mountain. The fire had attracted quite a crowd and smoke was visible for miles.
