I’m off to Banff on Sunday for a very quick trip through the Canadian Rockies. I’ll only be there for about twelve hours since I have a meeting on Monday afternoon but I just couldn’t imagine going to Calgary without making the drive up to the mountains. It’s only a ninety minute drive from downtown and believe me the scenery is so worth it.
A good place for sunrise pictures is Two Jack Lake as the sun hits the mountain perfectly in the morning. On this morning there was a decent sunrise but about ten minutes later fog started to roll in and I took this and a couple of other shots. Ultimately, the fog got so thick the mountain disappeared from view.

The weather actually looks pretty good on Sunday afternoon – highs in the 80s and sunny throughout most of the day. If everything travel wise goes well I’ll get to spend a few hours taking pictures since sunset this time of year is around 10:15 PM. The bad news (or good since my meeting is at 10:30 AM Monday) is that sunrise comes early also at around 5:30 AM so I won’t get much sleep but I’ll sleep on the flight home.
