September Storm~

moves in fast,

at high elevation,

in the Canadian Rockies.

It is a beauty,

to behold,

albiet quite cold!

The ride back down the mountain,

was nippy without our ski gear.

Cheers to you from the rockies in the fall~

  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

  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.

  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!
