Canoeing Upriver

We were given the opportunity to borrow a friends’ canoe to take out on the Pembina River. The day we choose to head out was warm but windy and it took us an hour and a half to travel up river, a short distance that is just a 10 minute walk. After a short break we then turned back and made the same distance in just 20 minutes.

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.
