Awk Oh Elk

We left Hinton this am in the fog. Guy seemed to be disappointed becasue the fog was so heavy that when we turned that turn on the highway I'd not get the chance to see the Wow

Frosty Foggy Morning


I did, Wow


Taken through the window, sorry

Even with the fog it was a wow picture

Amazing Ah!



You can't see the mountain for the fog and rainbow but I thought you might like this picture.


Our drive through the mountains were a little interupted with wildlife but I didn't care it was like life stood still on both sides of the highway



Then again we meet up with some of these long horned sheep, this one is a big bull

I'm looking at the pictures and somehow the pictures just don't do the scenery justice, I mean it was way nicer than it looks here.

Then into town of Jasper for a short visit and found this guy just walking in front of our RV right there in the middle of downtown, he was heading over to eat the grass off the school playground

I was a little shocked and couldn't get my camera out fast enough, and only got his picture after he crossed in front of us. We waited and let him go though he looked like he would have anyway


Here he is, this is an Elk


He kept one eye on me, believe you me I might have feed that baby deer but this was out of my league, I wasn't getting out of the RV.


Maligne River Canyons

In the Jasper National Park we visited Maligne River Canyons


To think rushing water has formed these curves in the rocks


See how green and clear the water is?


Waterfals have been another capture,

While trees are always going to be part of my photos

roots clinging to life


Looks like this could be a fairy home.

You're right ... WOW!! Love the shots, but I know what you mean about not being able to capture the effect in a photo. You did a pretty good job though! Love the sheep and elk photos (wouldn't want to mess with either set of horns/antlers). And the photos from Jasper make me want to head out there myself. Have a great day, and thanks for sharing this wonderful adventure! Wendy x

Cindy, thanks for exposing me to parts of my country I knew nothing about. Canada is more fabulous than I knew. And your pictures are wonderful. Loved the rainbow in the mist, the canyons, the long horn sheep and the elk was beautiful. (It's nice to see that the elk was tolerated whereas here it would be shot in a panic.) You are going to have some wonderful memories and a perfectly huge collection of photos to scrapbook.
