With the autumn weather and leaves holding on just little bit longer, we couldn’t resist the allure of the mountains. Time to “Head out on the Highway (Transcanada #1, westbound)… Lookin’ for adventure… in whatever comes our way”. What followed is our photo essay of “drive-by shootings” (digital, of course). Most of the images were taken from our vehicle. We were in search of a lone aspen, glowing gold in the sun against dark green pine trees. And suddenly, there it was.
Scenic views just a few kilometres outside the Calgary city limits.
Around the bend and over the hill.
Still in the foothills. Where else can you go from prairie to foothills to rockies in less than an hour?
Highway 40, Kananaskis bound.
There can never been too many trees.
Fresh, snow-capped mountains.
Almost at the Kananaskis golf course
