Mount Rundle

Cooler and wetter weather has once again returned to our mountain town making it feel as if fall is not far off now.  Fortunately for me, Fall is my favourite season especially for hiking and biking!  See more photos of foggy Banff here.

WildFlowers

It’s been a very warm July for the Canadian Rockies and the wildflowers are out in full force now.  I have been photographing them as they arrive and have been putting together a photo list here.  There are so many more and such little time.  Off to the Alpine I go.

The Monarch Ramparts

I made my first summer hike up into the Alpine of Banff National Park today.  It has taken awhile for the snow to come off to get to some of my favourite areas and without a doubt the Monarch Ramparts are my absolute favourite spot to get out into the true wilds of Banff National Park.  See more of my photos from the day here.

A Decade In Banff

Kirstie and I arrived in Banff ten years ago this last Canada Day.  I was moving to a new country and Kirstie was returning home.  Canada’s Birthday could not have been a better date to have be our first to enter the country and more importantly to enter this incredibly beautiful town that we have called home for ten years now.  We are both very much looking forward to the next ten years and the rest of our lifetime in this place that we have settled.  We recently put together a list of our ten most favourite things to do around Banff here, on our collaboration Canoe Wedding.
