Kananaskis

My husband and I spent the day exploring Kananaskis and I have to say it is so beautiful there. The weather was absolutely perfect - mostly sunny but not too warm. There were so many pretty views of the mountains and several lakes and rivers. I'm so happy that we went at this time of year because the changing colours of the leaves made it even more pretty in my opinion.

For me, the strange thing about this picture is that a half hour drive prior to this we were in an area surrounded by snow (Canada's highest paved road) and just below freezing.

Overall it was a perfect little weekend, with lots of time spent enjoying the scenery and just relaxing together.

A favourite for me. Beautifully composed and so colourful. Really very good.

That's a really pretty scene. You have captured it well. My wife and I went for a long holiday weekend as well. I saw my fair share of snow and even spun out on Cameron Pass Summit in Colorado. I was a little shaken that's all. I have been documenting this trip for a few days now. Glad you had a good weekend, too.

@dune1953 it seems so crazy that there is snow, but i guess that is what happens in the mountains, but glad you were okay with the spin out!

I appologize for a group reply but would really like to say thanks for the views and comments on this. It was a really nice weekend spent in a lovely, scenic place that made me feel thankful to live in Alberta.
