Environmental Explorations

On my drive to and from the Under Western Skies conference, I was able to stop in Banff.

Banff National Park Map

The first day, it had started snowing, so I couldn’t see the mountains AT ALL. Here is a photo from the Bow River from Monday September 8th, and one from the Banff National Park museum:

Snow! Snow!

I visited it again on the way home, 6 days later, and was greeted by big and beautiful mountains.

I wasn’t able to make it to Lake Louise, but am hoping to the next time I go up to Alberta!
