    1. Idk either, but I noticed they make gorgeous red β€œcarpets.” And then there are the green carpets you shared. And the carpets of mist: thank you for sharing that glory! It almost makes it worthwhile to brave those bears… πŸ™ƒ

  1. A very lovely place Cindy, the views go on forever when that icy fog lifts. Who was the lookout for the bears while you focused on the pictures? Mind you, it would have to keep you on your toes πŸ€£β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

  2. I’m glad you experienced this exciting weather pattern without harm Cindy. I can remember hiking the Canadian Rockies in the summer and having a storm roll in with a 20 degree temperature drop, crazy winds, pouring rain, and hail. It was both exciting and concerning especially since I wasn’t prepared. Luckily, I just hiked down the mountain and I dried out once the storm finished.

  3. Hahaha. I love the sign, Cindy. You know why visitors should travel in groups of at least four, don’t you? If you’ve seen the size of these bears, you’ll know they have a big appetite, and four is the minimum needed to satiate them at snacktime.

  4. Love your photo’s Cindy… It looks cold… I flew over the Canadian Rockies in a helicopter-ride one May in the year 2000…. a ride of a life time…. And such a beautiful part of the world…
    Loved the wild flowers on the mountainside Cindy.. And oh.. yes I saw two live Black bears while in the Banff and Jasper areas.. along with Muse, and Elk… Your photo’s brought it all back..
    Thank you.. <3

      1. It was a special holiday Coast to coast across Canada as wedding anniversary gift to ourselves we never could afford a honeymoon. Lol πŸ˜‚ so 25 years later we treated ourselves πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–

  5. Beautiful photos. I love the bear sign and the part about groups of four – be careful! My kids tease me that it’s the person who is the slowest runner (me) that has to worry most about the bears.

          1. Cheers! Happy Autumn and remember to change your clock Sunday… for the second to the last time. March 12 will be the last! At least for the US.

  6. Gorgeous! I love to see the storms coming over the mountains her, and am reminded of Psalm 18: 9-13, especially, “He parted the heavens and came down; dark clouds were under his feet, He mounted the cherubim and flew;he soared on the wings of the wind.” Glad you got down safely!

  7. Love the Canadian Rockies! They are not the highest peaks in the world, but they are the youngest and least eroded!
    Thanks for these stunning shots, Cindy!
