Tomorrow I will be flying to Alberta to meet up with a bunch of friends to spend time exploring Banff and Jasper National Parks. Some of my friends have been there before and are revisiting one of the most beautiful areas in the world. For others, it will be their first time there and I can't wait to see their reactions when they see it. No matter how many photos you see of this area, the reality is even better.
I will be gone for almost two weeks, and have decided to take a break from posting on my blog and Facebook while I am gone. I usually have automated posts when I travel, but after a few years of not missing a post, I think I have earned it.
I leave you with this black and white interpretation that I took on my last trip there on the famed Icefields Parkway just north of the Columbian Icefields. See you in two weeks or so.
