Canada, Oh Canada!


It is hard for me to imagine a place more beautiful than the Canadian Rocky Mountains.  I hope that the following images, all captured by Cheryl, will make you feel the same.

Seen, above and below, are scenes from Mount Robson located in British Columbia...







There is a milky look to many of the waterways that is called "Rock Flour"...



The next images are from Banff National Park located in Alberta; Canada's first national park...







The main reason that I seldom take landscape images is that I feel inadequate to capture the vastness and beauty of such places.  In viewing these scenes I can imagine still, the fragrance of thousands of pine trees and the sound of water flowing over spectacular falls...











When travelling from Banff to Jasper National Park the route crosses the "Columbia Ice Field" which contains large and imposing glaciers...



Because of it's shape, this one is known as "Crow's Foot Glacier"...


Jasper National Park is less crowded, but just as beautiful as Banff.  The towns associated with each park reflect the character of their respective namesakes...




In my next blog post I will share some of the wildlife photos that I was able to obtain on our visit to Canada.

Thanks for visiting, be well, and come back soon.
