Pullover - Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

Sorrow Peak, Edith Cavell Road, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

My history with Jasper National Park usually revolves around rain, sometimes a lot of it. When I left Banff National Park on my way to Jasper, the weather was terrific. I was able to get some great shots at Two Jack Lake at sunrise and headed north on the Icefields Parkway. Somewhere about an hour south of Jasper, the heavens opened up for the rest of the day. My planned sunset shoot was history, and my only hope was that the weather would change for sunrise the next day.

When the alarm went off the next morning, a quick look outside was not promising, as it was still drizzling. In the past, I have had good luck heading out into bad weather, so I thought I would give it a try. I decided to head up Edith Cavell Road toward the Cavell Glacier, as I thought that, even if it was raining, the glacier might still be a good subject to photograph. It turned out to be fortuitous as the weather began to clear slightly. Edith Cavell Road is heavily treed, so getting views of the surrounding valley is hard. Fortunately, I found this two-car pullover that gave me this great view of Sorrow Peak.
