During the photography meetup a while ago @marcwebster sat on these rocks ands it’s been cool to see all the different ways a bunch of people captured this one shot! Most other people went wide and hyperfocaled, but I stand by my trusty 85 1.8 to make stellar shots every time.

I was reminded of the epic adventure that happened this week last year when I was instructing for the College of the Rockies. We left with beautiful fall colours into the White Goat Wilderness, close to Jasper, and woke up to a wintery surprise! Knee deep snow on a week long backpacking trip. I even had to call in a helicopter evacuation for an injury. You never know what you’ll wake up to in the mountains! Even though it was challenging conditions and terrain the white wonderland around us was beautiful and made for an unforgettable trip! . . . . . #winterinfall #expecttheunexpected #enjoythemoment #freshair #explorealberta #backpacking #canadianrockies #adventure_time #gowiththeflow #adventureawaits #banffnationalpark #jaspernationalpark #explorecanada #findyourbliss #theartofadventure

Today is the second post on fall foliage with colourful mushrooms and Fairy Barf. Yup, you read that correctly. The common name for the lichen in the top picture is Fairy Barf or Fairy Upchuck. it is commonly seen in the shady part of the trail on rotting logs and stumps. The pinkish/brown coloured discs look like "upchuck," and it might be a clue as to what shenanigans the woodland fairies get into when us hikers leave the trails. I believe the mushroom in the bottom left corner is cauliflower fungus. I don't know what the uprooted mushroom is in the bottom right corner - I just liked the texture and colour. To repeat, I am not a mushroom expert, but I am very interested in learning more. If you are a "mushroomologist," please advise if I have my identification somewhat correct. #takeahikewithourchildren #threemountainfamilyhikes #familiesclosertonauture #familyhiking #familyhikes #hikewithkids #travelalberta #explorealberta #hikealberta #naturewalks #naturephotography #canmore #kananaskis #waterton #jasper #banff #lakelouise #yoho #kootenay #hikeswithteens #fungus #lichens

"Without mountains, we might find ourselves relieved that we can avoid the pain of the ascent, but we will forever miss the thrill of the summit. And in such a terribly scandalous trade-off, it is the absence of pain that becomes the thief of life." - Craig D. Lounsbrough The pain of the ascent was definitely felt on this trek - after a 13km hike into Egypt Lake, we decided to tackle Pharoah Peak on the same day. The first of our two days in the backcountry was supposed to have been overcast only, but the forecast betrayed us and we were hit with wild wind, fog and rain. Although that thwarted our summit bid, we persisted just long enough to catch a break in the storm for this incredible view. All in all though, bad weather never makes for bad days when you're with some of the most rad people around. (But please help us wish for better weather for our trek into Assiniboine in.. T-1 day!!!!!!) . . . . . . . . . . #alpineclubofcanada #hikealberta #pnwonderland #livefolk #liveauthentic #womenwhohike #mybanff #letsgosomewhere #womenwhoexplore #imagesofcanada #thatpnwlife #banff #getoutside #greatnorthcollective #neverstopexploring #travelalberta #explorealberta #banffnationalpark #likeamountaingirl #exploremore #explorecanada #mountaingirls #wildernessculture #stayandwander #travelcanada #vsco #keepitwild #theoutbound #wildernessbabes #optoutside

BIANCO | Spaghetti Carbonara. First time trying the pasta here and it didn’t disappoint. Found that the pasta was a little dry once it cooled, but the bacon was super flavourful and tasty, and the noodles were perfectly aldente.

Embrace it all. The rain. The weather. Whatever will be will be. At the end of it, it’s just the story of you day. And the only thing that really matters is the person standing next to you.

Sometimes you'll get the prettiest views just on the side of the road. This has got to be a metaphor for something 😁

Out for a walk enjoying late summer vibes in Edmonton. Have you checked out both footbridges Riverbend? There’s one connected in Terwillegar Dog Park and another near Fort EDMONTON connected to Brander Gardens.

Sometimes I try to chase the green night light...sometimes I have some success, other nights not so much. This was a couple weeks ago, standing in the Athabasca River waiting for the lights to spark up...they never did, but I made some images anyhow. Here’s a little green glow and the Big Dipper from my efforts. • • • • • @tourismjasper @travelalberta @explorecanada @fujifilm_northamerica @fujifilm_xseries @gitzoinspires @7artisansofficial @crowfootmedia @canadiancreatives @weownthenight_ab #travelalberta #jaspernationalpark #venturebeyond #explorealberta #myjasper #canadianrockies #canadiancreatives #gitzoinspires #imagesofcanada #explorecanada #mufujifilm #xt2 #7artisans #12mm #mountaincultureelevated #explorealberta #xseries
