⛰ Approaching the climb ⛰ US train engineers had to traverse the Sierra-Nevada mountains. In Canada they faced the formidable Rockies. In a few minutes this train will be climbing the mountains, crossing over deep canyons and winding through spiralling granite tunnels. . . . . . . . #albertaviews #albertalife #explorealberta #albertacanada #banff #banffnationalpark #yyc #calgary #outdoortones #earthoutdoors #imagesofcanada #explorecanada #livelovecanada #paradisecanada #canadasworld #tourcanada #cprail #rockies #rockymountains #pnwescapes #pnwdiscovered #pnwisbeautiful #pnwonderland #pnwparadise #yycnow #calgaryisbeautiful #calgaryviews #raw_canada #canada_photolovers at Alberta

There were 4 old, dying spruce at this location (Mill WoodS Town Centre @Starbucks). A 5th had fallen over some time ago. They were heritage trees and a local grade school planted new trees in their place. The old trees? ...made into benches (right side of photo) @heartwood_mill - - - #yeg #edmonton #yeglife #yeggers #yegrealtor #edmontonliving #yegliving #sherwoodpark #alberta #yeglocal #sprucegrove #edmontonlife #edmontonviews #albertaviews #edmontonalberta #edmontonmade #edmontonhomes #alwaysstaypositive #yegrealestate #stonyplain

I was planning to make this short trek by myself last week as I've been missing the mountains a lot and it was an easy enough hike that I can comfortably go solo. But by happenstance, an old coworker reached out, wondering if I had any more winter hikes planned up. It was definitely the right decision to not continue solo as I just passed out on the passenger seat after the hike, with the adrenaline of it all being substituted by fatigue from the lack of sleep the night before. Thanks again, @gin_tonik11, cause otherwise, I'd have had to nap in my car as soon as I got back to the car park 😓. • • • • • 👤: @gin_tonik11 • • • • #yycphotographer #dailyhiveyyc #albertaviews #wanderlust #rockies #mountainlife #peoplewhohike #mountains #exploretocreate #neverstopexploring #wanderer #nature #earthpix #earthfocus #travelalberta #explorealberta #explorecanada #travelcanada #parkscanada #canadiandestinations #imagesofcanada #justcanadathings_ #visitcanada #paradisecanada #passporttoearth #fujifilm #fujifilm_northamerica #fujifilm_xseries #fujixt20 @explorecanada @travelalberta at Icefields Parkway, Banff, Alberta, Canada

Important lesson, never limit your learning.⁣ •⁣ I used to take a lot of what I read at face value because it was the popular quote or the information with the most google hits, but that is far from the real truth. If we limit our readings and our learning then we remain ignorant of some cold and hard truths that do not set those that are loved on the same pedestals, and nor should they be. ⁣ •⁣ My first readings about Yosemite led me to that of John Muir and his quotes are all over the internet and Instagram. But further reading led me to a path that is hidden from the mainstream, his disgraceful and abhorrent attitude of the indigenous people of the land, how can it be that those who were most connected to the world and the landscapes that he spoke so dearly of be the people that he treated so harshly? Because he was a racist. Should we ignore this because of what he did for the National Park movement? Of course not, because it is delegitimising the people who were connected to the land in a way he never could be, and strengthening our unconscious bias in our attitudes to indigenous people. ⁣ •⁣ If you travel through Instagram and look at posts you will rarely see pictures which have captions that give the location of places with indigenous name, I’m guilty of that myself, but again, we can always improve and change for the better. Acknowledgement of indigenous place-names gives a pathway into that cultural history that is often ignored in our modern ideology, but it’s one that we need to pay more attention to and display, rather than hide as we have. ⁣ •⁣ I chose to speak about this on this photo because of where I took it - Sunwapta (turbulent river in native language) Falls, the land of the Stoney Nakoda people (Iyarhe Nakoda, Iyethkabi).⁣ •⁣ Let us keep learning.⁣ at Sunwapta River

City Meets The Sky #capturecalgary #calgaryviews #yyc ____________________________________ The beautiful Bow Skyscraper on a frozen day in February. I thought the rolling clouds contrasted nicely against the furnace steam permeating from the building. I always find it difficult to capture a creative one of The Bow, but I think this one is worth sharing ____________________________ Somethin' a little different to throw in with the birdie pics!
