Rocky Mountains in the Fall

Pictures from August and September 2020 near Nordegg, Alberta. About 150 kms west of Rocky Mountain House. The reserve I am from is called Maskwacis. I put that sticker there. So it’s Fall here in Alberta and I wanted to show you the colours. Yellow leaves are everywhere. I used my Olympus OMD EM10 version 2 camera for most of these shots. The lens were a 40-150 mm and a 12-60 high grade lens. Both lens have UV filters for them.

Canada Day Job

I set up a PA system in Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada, on July 1st, 2018. I had to be there early and set up before the dancers and singers got there. All went well on set up and testing and then the pow wow started. The dancer is what we call a “Chicken Dancer.” He imitates the prairie chicken if you have ever seen those birds in the wild.

I also took these pictures with my Olympus E-3 10.2 megapixels.

Forest Trunk Road Near Nordegg, Alberta, Canada

There’s this road this is very remote in the Rocky Mountains. It’s called the Forest Trunk road and it runs north and south from the David Thompson Highway 11 in Alberta, west of Rocky Mountain House. I went by myself as usual because none of my friends like this kind of discovery. This area is very good for hunting because I saw some deer when I went in. This was the first time down this road and I was actually going to go to the Ram River Falls which is 60Kilometers or 45 miles down this road. If you go on the north Trunk Road you can go to Camp where some of the Plains Cree Indian people live. If you travel to remote areas always have a good reliable truck. Not a car! A truck or SUV. Beware of animals and make sure you know how to camp outside if your vehicle breaks down. Have protection, I have my compound bow and arrow that I pack with me all the time on these excursions.
