This month's calendar features an image from the prairies east of Calgary with the last light of the sun reflecting off the train tracks. I used to see sights like this on an almost daily basis in the winter while driving to or from work. How many times have you seen something like this and just kept going because you were too busy to stop? Sometimes you just need to slow down, take it all in, and enjoy the ride...
This month's calendar features the brand new Downtown Central Library (that just opened in Calgary after 4 years of construction) with an LRT train passing by as it comes out of the tunnel below the building. The building is visually stunning, both inside and out, and features some amazing architecture. It will be a fantastic place for Calgarians to visit and to show off to visitors and tourists that come to town. If you haven't had a chance to see it yet you really need to make plans to get down to the new library for a tour!
This month's calendar features Cameron Falls in Waterton National Park. We recently made a day trip to Waterton and while there we hiked from the townsite to Crandell Lake. The Crandell Lake trail starts at Cameron Falls, which is a very beautiful spot... With all the rain we've had over the last couple of weeks the falls were flowing beautifully and made for some great pictures!
This month's calendar features a juvenile bald eagle feasting on the remains of a salmon during the salmon run from the Fraser River into Swift Creek near Valemount, BC. The creek was full of very large salmon that were building their spawning nests and preparing to lay their eggs. The abundance of fresh food attracted plenty of birds to the river, including 2 beautiful bald eagles that we saw repeatedly during our stay.
This month's calendar features a beautiful landscape scene from a recent horseback trail ride we went on in the Kananaskis region of the Alberta Rocky Mountains. This is a (mostly) annual trip that we've been doing with Anchor D Guiding and Outfitting for the last several years. The Anchor D ranch is adjacent to the Bluerock Wildland section of Kananaskis Provincial Park which is some amazingly beautiful country in the foothills of the Rockies!
