Railway tracks through Winterwonderland - Along the “Senic Route to Alaska” (HW43) in beautiful Alberta
Where will 2018 takes us? Are we going to follow known and proven tracks or are we going to lay some new ones?
I am curious and excited and have a little bit of both planned for the upcoming months … 😀
There are several theories out there for the classic red colour of the old barns. Ranging from “trying to look like brick”, “signalling the way home” to adding rust or blood to the linseed oil for conservation purposes.
I think it’s for the sheer beauty of it, so that we photographers have a colourful subject that stands out from the greens, yellows and blues in the landscape 😊😊😊
It’s like the real-life teal-orange colour grading. Just loving the colour and texture contrast of the rock walls, the ice masses and the glacial waters.
Another take from our visit to Mount Edith Cavell. Always worth the trip :-) -feel free to share with credit & tag-✌️😊
Mount Edith Cavell - One of our favourites locations in Jasper National Park. On our latest trip we spontaneously decided to stay overnight in the hostel. What we didn’t know was that they we’re in the middle of repairs of both the Glacier Parking lot, as well as the hostel itself! So while at night every 20 mins a truck would pass the hostel, bringing gravel down the road, sometimes using their retarder brakes, in the morning were greeted by Bobcats digging and moving rocks around the hostel area. Not to mention some heavy snoring going on in the dorm.
Needless to say we had a pretty tough morning.
However, we decided to have a quick look at the glacier, despite the gravel trucks and noise.
The nice part of the day then started once we were far away enough from the trucks and then realized that due to the ATB bike race in Jasper nobody was allowed up the mountain road until 3pm. So we found ourselves almost alone in the usually crowded glacier valley. What an awesome and rewarding surprise after that night!
