Very nice. I enjoyed them - thanks for posting.

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

I really like #1.

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.

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.
