Flying out to a site north of Calgary, we captured this nice early spring view of Cochrane with the Bow River in the foreground, the foothills and Rocky Mountains in the background.  Small as it is, the train adds a nice bit of colour to the scene.

Agathla Peak

This is an area just south of Monument Valley, USA.  Agathla Peak is the tall formation on the left and was created by volcanic activity.  Could be a scene from “Lord of the Rings”.
