We stopped at this famous train track view in Banff, thinking we might stay for 15 or 20 minutes to see if we’d get lucky and see a train. As we sat down, a man traveling from Germany approached us as and we chatted, we learned that he flew all the way to Banff just to see and hear these trains pass through. He’d been at this spot all day watching them! His fascination with diesel trains (which is apparently something they don’t have in Germany) and the sounds that they make was next level; I’ve never met someone so interested in trains before! We compared lots of things about the US and Germany; everything from our government, to gas prices, to gun laws. It was fascinating to talk to someone from a different country about all of these things and to hear his opinions of both our country and his. At least an hour had gone by when we heard a train off in the distance, and just like that he was gone, running to the other side of the viewpoint to capture a video of it coming through for his friend back home who didn’t come on the trip with him.
Yes, I travel for the trails and the views, but experiences like these are the cherry on top of traveling and getting out of your comfort zone. And, we got to see a train, so that was pretty cool too.
Pour ce 2ème épisode, on reste sobre. Un montage très simple et des images du même lieu pour une fois.
Sur notre route avant Edmonton, on a commencé à voir pas mal de panneaux de bisons. Premier réflexe : se trouver un café avec du wifi. Mots clés : bisons, Alberta, Edmonton. Et premier résultat (au milieu des ranchs de la région) : Elk Island National Park, un parc national de 194 km2 entièrement dédié à la préservation des bisons d'Amérique ! Petit crochet de 35km au nord, et nous voilà à l'accueil... fermé. Pas de barrières, on décide de continuer pour finalement trouver le premier post qui nous délivrera notre pass annuel à l'ensemble des parcs nationaux du Canada. On restera alors 2 jours dans le parc fascinés par le nombre d'espèces que l'on peut rencontrer lorsque l'on sait être patient et surtout silencieux.
The best scenic photos are taken during the fall😍🍂🌲

The amazing thing about the Canadian Rockies is that in addition to the plethora of stunning lakes everywhere you turn there’s mind-blowing scenery every which way you turn like this waterfall a 5 minute walk (and 10 minute scramble face first in the ice but that’s another story) from the parking lot!
Driving through the mountains in BC this summer was both beautiful and sad at the same time. The suffocating smoke from the wildfires was creating so many beautiful layers, but @shealagimodiere and I couldn’t help but feel for all the people and animals affected by the fires. ⛰
One of the most memorable sunsets from last summer in Yosemite. We hustled down the trail and got to the viewpoint just as the peaks were lighting up. We stared in awe at the valley below and it all of a sudden started snowing for a few minutes!
All in all, mother nature sure put on quite the show for us. Always a blessing to witness 😊🙌🏻
