As promised, an aerial view of some of the northern parts of beautiful Banff National Park.

Helicopters had been chartered on 'minimums' to ensure availability for forest fire control.
But with the contracts coming to an end, and no fires to fight, we had to make the best use possible of the remaining hours.
The work we were doing today involved getting much needed supplies flown into remote backcountry patrol cabins.
This often meant feed for our horses, but also some firewood in areas where natural supplies are unavailable.
In some cases, we were able to bring along other park staff, and show them the country!
A lot of very remote, wild terrain.
Glacial carved valleys.
Turquoise lakes!
Bonus. Two videos at the bottom.
