Alberta, British Columbia Scenery

I think it would be a nice break if I posted more pictures of the scenery in
Alberta and the Kootenay lakes area in BC. There are so many beautiful views and
the autumn here is very pretty - although we don't have the colors you do in the east.

This is the area around Fernie BC the mountains in Southern Alberta and BC are quite
different than the Rockies in the Banff, Jasper area - they are very beautiful though.
This one is in the Crowsnest Pass near the Alberta, B.C. border I believe it is called either Big Chief or Chief - It is absolutely spectacular as it is the only mountain in the immediate area - very beautiful. The Kootenay lakes
are so pretty - this was taken from the ferry as we crossed on our way to Nakusp -

The photos below are taken just outside of Calgary - we took a trip to check out the fall colors - You can get a good idea of what the foothills and prairie around here look like in the fall. I refer to pictures like the ones on the right all the time for my scenes. The
area around here as ranching country - and some of the ranches are huge - much like
in Texas from what I have heard.
