There is a lot of snow in those there mountains. October 4, 2018 and most years there may be a light dusting of snow, or maybe some frost but this year the snow is cold and deep. Great for building the snow pack and for pictures, not so great for people or animals trying to get through it.
I wanted to take a “fall” trip to Banff and Kananaskis for a number of shoots that I planned to do. Well the trip was more like a winter trip than fall and I never got any of the shots that I went for. I did manage to get chased away from an area that I wanted to shoot by a warden, something about no camping and well I did fall asleep while I was waiting for the snow flurries to stop falling – which they never did all night!!!! Still had a great time. I can tell you that some of the back roads in southern Alberta are not fit for driving this time of year. Some MAJOR ruts and challenges!
An afternoon trip to Writing on stone this past weekend. It was overcast and cool but the colors were amazing!!! Love this park when it is not unbearably hot!
Surprisingly there were a lot of people camping considering the weather was cool and damp. But as usual as soon as you walk a few feet into the coulees you may hear the people but you seldom see them. Not a lot of animals out this trip, saw a number of Pronghorns just outside the park but that was it.
