Alberta - Wild Rose Country

Alberta - home to the oldest (Banff) and the largest (Jasper) Canadian National Park in the Rockies; it's where the prairie and the mountains, the fabulous, hot summers and harsh, windy winters "meet".
Tribe image: Lake Louise (Banff National Park).
Tribe background: summer sunset in Edmonton.

This might as well be http://tribesports.com/tribes/beautiful-british-columbia's "sister" tribe (thank you for the great tribe, Melissa @misspistol!).

The ice rink (in front of the City Hall) is a fountain in the summer time. About the second pic... oh, I have a few things to say to the next person who claims that winter cycling "consumes as many calories as summer cycling". I'd send them to try out walking on piles of molten snow... easy-peasy.

They're there... on the northern prairie sky, getting even more beautiful as one drives up north... They seem to dance to an eerie song as they sometimes cover up the whole sky in ribbons and veils of light.

Wonderful photos of a recent auroral e...

Thank you, Helen! There' something immensely beautiful about this festival. When I "found" it in 2007, I remember crying at the Mexican pavilion, after trying to hold the tears back at the Romanian pavilion. :) I've gotten better and so did the festival :). It's always on a splendidly sunny weekend, the food is great and one must "reserve" at least half a day just to wander around the place...

#1 - it took me a bit to realize those guys in the background were not clouds... just the Rockies minding their business.

These were taken on Aero Drive, Calgary airport area... Barely a car passing by... When I took #6, all I could think was "this might as well be how a post-apocalyptic Earth would look like". :)

Contributorgold Lavinia I Wildlife part 1.5. The Capital City (Edmonton) only has "regular" squirrels - the rust-colored variety, plenty of hares and - word has it - coyotes in the River Valley... These guys were spotted (striped?) in Banff.
