We drove down the parkway past castle mountain. It was well maintained and the view wonderful.

I took one of my best mountain shots here. It was a perfect slightly overcast day which made for amazing reflections in the emerald blue water.

Great area to travel if you're looking to take some amazing photo's on your travels. Be Smart, Don't go near the wildlife!

The stunning scenery makes the drive more than worthwhile, make sure you continue all the way along the Icefields Parkway too.
We stopped at Bow Lake for some snowshoeing and were surprised to see so much snow at the start of May! Make sure you take warm clothes with you.
