Very nice. I enjoyed them - thanks for posting.

That teepee is your home? Seems kinda chilly for a Canadian winter. :)

I really like #1.

What is that country like in the summer as far as temperature ? Are the mountain tops always covered with snow there, I'm not familar with how high above sea level the peaks are but it is very pretty country

I live in Calgary . about 60 miles East of the Mountains
The Mountain peaks are approx 9000 ' to 12,000 ' Above sea level
The summers are GREAT . In the summers the temps vary from 40 F to 80 F. In the summer there is some snow at the very peaks of the mountains.

Beautiful country Fred.
And, your photographs certainly do show it in it's best light.

Well done and thank you for sharing.

My girlfriend has flown into Calgary and done some horseback riding in the mountains via a ranch or two that does one-week or longer ride/camping trips that goes where no automobile can.

She's come home with some awesome vistas from up there.
