There's good news and bad news this time around. The good news is, the truck you see buried in snow will be saddled up with the camper in just over a month, and will be headed south, south, south!The bad news is; the truck is totally covered in snow! And so is the camper and the 5th wheel. I'll be shoveling them off again whenever I have time - during daylight hours.
Welcome to the spies from Parks Canada! Apparently, they have nothing better to do than read my blog and try to determine if I possibly took a photo while I was at work! All I can say is 'get a life'!
After several large dumps of snow, which incidentally convinced even me to strap on the boards and do a few powder runs, the sun came out and the results were some irresistible photo ops.
I had to take a 10 second coffee break for each of them.
All of these photos were taken along the Icefields Parkway, also known and the Banff-Jasper highway, or Highway #93, north of Lake Louise, south of Jasper.
Mt. Wilson, near the junction of #93 and #11 highways.
There were some high elevation winds, transporting the fresh snow around, no doubt increasing the avalanche hazard in these back country areas.
In fact, the reason I was forced to drive through this wondrous scene, was to close the road north to Jasper, till the avalanche hazard along the road was safely controlled. I wonder if I can say that?
In fact, at various times over the last few days, most or all the highways leading from Alberta into British Columbia have been closed for hours or days due to avalanche hazard, or driving conditions.
