2021 The Mountains

I went out west in Alberta toward the mountains a few days ago and here are the photos. I turned at the Cardinal River road and a few miles later took this picture.

I stopped at Brown Creek and took these pictures. The brown creek campground is usually busy during the summer but not today. It was kind of cold and not to many people on the road that day.

Nearing my destination I took these photos standing on the back of my reliable Chevy truck.

The Brazeau River campground is about 5 miles from here.

So that is it. I hope you liked the pictures and comment below if you want. These pictures were taken north of Nordegg, Alberta, Canada in April 2021, on the Forestry Trunk road. A desolate and isolated road that not many people travel on.

Cranbrook, BC, Canada

Way back in the 1980s, I can’t remember the year, I took a trip from Skookumchuck (yes that’s the name) to Rocky¬† Mountain House, Alberta with two people who are no longer with us.¬† As I started my journey I had to go where I haven’t been in a while. That meant blazing a new trail for myself and going somewhere I haven’t been in a while. The first challenge was leaving Lake Louise in Alberta and making it to the BC border. As usual in mountain traveling it went up very far. Coming down was challenging too. I had to make sure not to gain to much speed because you don’t know how your vehicle is going to handle in these conditions. In BC they have run a way lains for truck drivers who lost control of their vehicles.

Getting to the Radium Hot Springs was not too bad it was coming back that was hard. As I got to Radium the small town reminded me of a Swiss Village. From there I made it to Skookumchuk and talked to a local lady. We knew the same people from that time and she updated me on the people I used to know. So I left Skooks to go Cranbrook. The place I was born. The small city has not changed much and you can still smell the pulp mill in the morning.

Finally I made it back to Alberta. Coming home was more challenging than getting there. You feel good getting home, it’s true whoever said that. It was a great get a way for two days. I packed up, got in my truck and left. I recommend people do that once in a while.

David Thompson Highway 11: Rocky Mountains

I was in the Rocky Mountains out west of Rocky Mountain House in Alberta, Canada. I live about 5 hours away from the mountains. You need a good vehicle to get out there. It was a nice day. I don’t usually do selfies but I did on this one. I also took some pictures with my Olympus E-3 DSLR.

This is what I do when I have time off. I did this in one day but I had to leave at about 7 am from my place.
