Pembina Valley in Peak Colour

I traveled back on the old railroad line that has been converted to a recreation path and enjoyed the intense colours of late September.
This creek bed photo was taken near sunset in early October, after a year long drought that has left the creek with just a small trickle of water.
This is a gate to someone’s private property, a road heading up the hill and out of the valley.

Alberta Sunset

In Alberta we enjoyed a white water rafting trip down the Athabasca River. The water was very cold, even in late August, and the view was unforgettable.

We drove over to Old Fort Point just before sunset to check out a scenic lookout up a hill that overlooked the Athabasca River, Twin Lakes, and the small town.

Whistler View

Whistler, BC is known for it’s ski hills but we visited in the summer, when the snow is replaced with green and a smattering of wild flowers as well as hikers, exploring the steep trails. We purchased some tickets and rode the Peak 2 Peak Gondola, the world’s longest unsupported span at 3.024km (1.88miles), and enjoyed the view.

The Peak 2 Peak is also world’s highest lift at 436m (1,427ft) above the valley floor.
