The Banff Fire Department

Banff is full of dramatic mountain scenes and when walking around town the mountains beckon you to look up at them and walk with your eyes wandering across the landscapes seen right from town.  There is another beauty in town though, one that is as strong as the mountains that surround our little town and this beauty that I speak of is the people…

Lake Agnes and The Little Beehive | Banff National Park

Kirstie and I had a great day off hiking up to Lake Agnes and the Little Beehive.  See more photos from our day here on our mountain wedding guide Canoe Wedding.  Mountain Goats, Pikas, some light snow and fresh air made for a great Thanksgiving day outing!

In Opposition More Daring

When adversity strikes I know no better way to work on hitting the reset button than going directly into nature, as far into the back country of these mountains that I live in as humanely possible.  It just so happens that I already had an overnight trip planned as adversity reared it’s ugly head.  My adversity is nothing new and is nothing in particular…

Lake O’Hara

Lake O’Hara is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and they limit the amount of people that can go into this fragile alpine area daily.  Kirstie and I book a day there every September and every year it is completely different.  Last year we had a day that was without a cloud in the sky, 22 degrees and the Larch trees had already turned golden…

Mount Rundle

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…
