Alberta Snow near Calgary

I was up in Calgary early in April, and I enjoyed the snow. Phyllis Davis treated me to a Calgary day of pleasure; I chose seeing Lake Louise. We drove out toward the mountains, we could see them far off to the west. Calgary is on the prairie, so it was straight roads until we got to the mountains.

i’ve learned to take photos from the car window, when possible… i don’t mind the blur in front… the car zoom.

Phyllis was dissappointed by the clouds… she was afraid i wouldn’t see any mountains at Lake Louise. it’d be all socked in.

Indeed, Lake Louise was socked in… but still beautiful with snow falling lightly. We had lunch at the Chateau, looking out at Lake Louise which was full of snow, with ice underneath. On one side of the lake was a mountain, soaring and still visible. I certainly enjoyed the experience.

Phyllis and I were walking along the lake on our way back to the car, when a man and his team and horsesleigh appeared coming around the corner. by the time i managed to grab my camera, they were on their way. I photoshopped Phyllis into the photo… a remembrance of a fun day!
