David Thompson Hwy Landscapes : Saskatchewan Crossing Gallery 3 David Thompson Hwy Landscapes:  

On the August long weekend, I spent a few days camping with my friend Larry near the Saskatchewan Crossing. Over 3 of those days we explored east on the David Thompson Highway past Abraham Lake & Nordegg, then south on the Forestry Trunk Road.   Just a couple of months earlier a wildfire had raged through an open area burning several stands of trees and scorching the ground.  The burnt trees and the surprising new growth of bright green grass and provided a colorful contrast with the intermittent blue skies.

Icefield Parkway (Banff-Jasper) : Gallery 1.  Icefield Parkway & Intro.  On the August long weekend, I travelled up to Saskatchewan Crossing to camp with a friend and photographer.  This is the first of 5 galleries from that weekend all to be contained under the sub-category “Saskatchewan Crossing Galleries”.   Galleries 2-4 will be posted over the next couple of weeks.

Gallery 1 Icefields Parkway Landscapes (This Gallery):  Highlights landscape photos taken the Icefields Parkway.  Pictures include the new glass-floored observation platform currently under construction, waterfalls, great clouds, and wildflowers that frame these spectacular mountains. I was taken back by the amount that the Columbia Glacier had receded.  This was especially evident during the summer when the snow doesn't mask the actual glacier.  

Gallery 2 David Thompson Hwy Landscapes:  While there we explored east on the David Thompson Highway past Abraham Lake & Nordegg, then south on the Forestry Trunk Road.   Just a couple of months earlier a wildfire had raged through an open area burning several  stands of trees.  The burnt trees and new growth of bright green grass and wildflowers made for some interesting photographs.  

Gallery 3 Rainbows and the Milky Way: Pictures of a spectacular double and full width rainbow at Nordegg and night shots of the Milky Way.

Gallery 4 Wildlife and Wildflowers:  Along the way we saw some interesting wildlife including butterflies, squirrels, deer, mountain sheep and a vanishing bear.   We also came across a very cooperative and photographic marmot. 
 
Gallery 5 Wild Stallions and Mare:  The final day was very special.  I met an old friend.  We crossed paths with the incredible wild stallion that I had come face to face a couple of years ago (see Wild Stallion Gallery).  Once again he approached us to check us out but this time was not as near or agitated as he had the earlier encounter.

Note: Galleries 2-4 will be posted over the next couple of weeks.

Portrait Orientation : Slot Canyons are commonly formed in sandstone after many years of erosion due to flash floods and other
evironmental factors. The particular canyons shown here are Upper and Lower Antelope Canyon near Page,
Arizona and Little Wild Horse Canyon in Utah.
