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…

Like A Kid In A Candy Shop

Today we received an abundance of snow, our first snowfall of the year.  It was 22 degrees yesterday and both Kirstie and I received sunburns.  Today was a very different story.  Snow has come very early and today was one of those days that I will not easily forget.  There was lightening, thunder, and snow!  Lots of snow!  So I naturally took to the…

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.


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…

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…
