Wildlife in the Rockies

These photos are taken from a trip through the Rocky Mountain range between the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta.

The purple line on the map below gives you some idea of the route taken.

I have been through the Rocky Mountains several times but this was the first time through the mountains using the town of Rocky Mountain House as the way to get there. (I usually go through Jasper and Banff).

If memory serves me correctly we were travelling in the month was May.  We ran into snow in a few parts of the mountains. We also saw a bit of wildlife.

  7. what a beautiful area, thanks for sharing.

  8. Now you're in big trouble. You went through Red Deer and didn't stop for coffee!!!The David Thompson Highway is a very scenic road. You can almost bet money that you will see sheep in that area. Right behind them is Whirl Pool POint Ridge which I've been up many times.

  9. Great to see the map Penny. Would love to explore. Thanks for sharing your trip.

  10. Oh how gorgeous! Really love seeing the goats on the side of the road.

    1. Hi John, thank you for your kind comment. This trip was about 2 1/2 years ago on a visit to my uncle. I do agree that BC is beautiful but these scenes are actually in Alberta ;-)
