Photo Review: Alberta

We have been lucky enough to spend most of the month in southern and western Alberta.  It is famous as a land of great beauty and extremes.  I hope you enjoy the photos.

  1. Nice photos Sharon…
    I believe it is Maligne canyon and falls. This is a link to Youtube on June 19th… sure a different color of run off! I think we were lucky to see it when we did!

  2. Were we really there?

  3. Love, love, LOVE the glacial lake photo!

    • Thanks Madelon. It was interesting, because we were hiking up the Cavell Meadows trail and you couldn’t see the lake at all until you climbed up on some rocks overlooking it.
