Nature Photography highlights from Canadian Rockies
Arrived in Canadian Rockies 13 Sep. It was in the mid-80s that I was here last. Lots more buses and tourist now. Points accumulated on IHG rewards credit card and previous stays at IHG hotels qualified us for free overnight stays in several locations. IHG rewards club Good way to save money and extend our stay. First nights stayed in Canmore, approximately 20 km from Banff. Quieter town with fewer tourists. Beautiful view of mountains in front of hotel and behind town but warm light striking mountain tops did not last long, 6:45 to 715 PM. Aspen were yellow and were a striking contrast to the evergreens. Wildlife around Banff was limited – black bear inside forest edge & several elk on Banff Golf Course. More critters later. Raining yesterday and today. Hoping for better weather ahead.
