Whirlpool Point

Whirlpool Point is in Alberta, Canada. The water is turquoise or blue whichever you see. I see turquoise. The nearest town is Nordegg, Alberta. There is plaque with names on it near the river, those were the trailblazers back in those days but the First Nations people already new these routes before them. These pictures were taken with my Lenovo Tablet4 8.

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.

North of Nordegg, Alberta along the Forestry Trunk road. 2021.

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.

On the Forestry Trunk road near the Brazeau River campground.
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.

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.

Abraham Lake in January

I went to Abraham Lake near Nordegg, Alberta, Canada, in January. This is the first time I’ve been there in the Winter. Usually I go in the Summer so this was different. The roads were good but it was cold. There were a few people out at the lake. I have to commend these people for being out here in the middle of nowhere. This is not a place where you want your vehicle to break down.

Abraham lake has these methane bubbles that come up from the bottom The bubbles get frozen one on top of the other which makes it look amazing. I guess you can call them frozen bubbles.

This area where I went to take pictures is near an Indian reservation. The people who live there are called the Kiska Waptan-Wesley First Nation. There is a store and gas station there. It’s a small community but I thought I would mention it here.

Road to Saskatchewan Crossing. The road goes south from here. Kootney Plains is over that hill.
The moon was coming out just as I was having some food. I grabbed my Olympus EPL1 camera and took this.
That’s the David Thompson Highway 11.

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.
