Below is the photo journal from my 48-hour trip to Canmore this past December. We spent a fair amount of time drinking and lounging in the hot tub, but the majority of my photographs were fixed on the mountains. There is nothing like them in Pennsylvania. We have the Appalachian Mountains, but those are little more than foothills compared to these.
If you ever make your way to Banff, Kootenay, Yoho, Waterton or Jasper in the winter consider yourself lucky. And if you are hitting the slopes, make sure to get there before the first gondola sets out.
