Winding Road to Waterton Lakes

The road to Waterton Lakes provided an incredible introduction to the mountains on my Rocky Mountain road trip. Around each corner I was tempted to stop and take more pictures - and as you can see, I did. The rolling hills, farms, and mountain backdrop were all iconic Alberta. It was an absolute joy to drive.












I stopped briefly in Cardston, Alberta to check out the historic Latter-day Saints temple located there. Built between 1913-1923, the Cardston Temple is the oldest LDS temple outside of the United States. It was designated a National Historic Site in 1992.

Red Rock Coulee at Sunrise: Part 1

A couple weeks ago I decided to drive out to Red Rock Coulee at 6am to photograph the sunrise. On my last visit a few years ago I captured the sunset, and my recent travels through the mountains had me energized to focus on some of the natural landscapes in my own backyard. I was really happy with the shots I came away with, and even more, I loved having the location to myself to explore and hike that morning.
