My friend Mishelle and I made a trip to Maligne Canyon last weekend for another icy adventure. Or, another for me and a first for her. While we were there, I was amazed to see how much the ice formations have changed since I last walked there one month ago. We were even able to walk right into the canyon, which we couldn't do in December.
Since my first visit to the canyon was part of a guided tour, I felt a wee bit rushed, so I didn't take any micro photos of the beautiful ice and frost. So, when we went back, I made a point of opening my eyes to the small things. And then, my camera died, leaving me with numerous variations of these three photos. Let's just say, I'm thankful I ended up with a few shots that are in focus. It could have been worse.
I guess this just means I have to go back a third time, so I can really do the place justice. No skin off my back. I could spend hours exploring the nooks and crannies of this amazing canyon.
In other news, this afternoon I'm leaving the city to head back to Jasper. It was a fun week, with a couple of blogger meet ups and a reunion with a friend I haven't seen since our high school graduation nine years ago. The reunion wasn't even planned. We just happened to be in the same hotel and I recognized him as I was leaving one morning. I love coincidences like that!
