It’s that time of year, when I post my favourite panoramas of the past twelve months. It was a tough cull this year — there’s just so much beauty out there! If you’ve never been to the “Canadian Alps” (as they were once called in tourism brochures), I hope these shots inspire you to plan a trip here. And if you’re a Rocky Mountain veteran, may they bring you fond memories of this extraordinary place.
March: on the Dolomite Circuit, a ski tour around Dolomite peak, north of Lake Louise, with my friends Hannah, Marcus and Anna.
April: Snowshoeing along a lovely stream in Yoho National Park with Paul & Eva.
June: Stephanie admiring the view at the Abbot Pass Lookout, above the Plain of Six Glaciers.
July: Lake O’Hara reflecting Schaffer Ridge and Mount Odaray like a mirror.
August: a bumper crop of fireweed beside the trail to Boulder Pass.
September: Larch trees in all their golden glory in the Skoki Valley on September 24, which was one of the peak days for colour this year (it ranges from about September 19 to 25).
Let’s see what 2022 brings for grand vistas and glorious scenes. Happy New Year, everyone!
