    In the first set, # 2 is breathtaking! What a wonderful capture.

    In the second set. How'd you get so close to the chipmunk, were you wearing the cloak of invisibility?

    It was 4 feet from me. They will walk right upto you and touch you if they think you have food. The elk and sheep I was within 6 feet at one point. Beautiful, calm, and friendly animals. They're Canadian what would you expect :)

    Went back to go see the Inkpots in Banff National Park. It was a 12KM(7.%mi) round trip mountain hike to go see them.

    Hi Kelly,

    What a beautiful spot. Can you wade in them, or just look?

    Just look so they don't get destroyed. My pictures don't do that spot any justice:frown:

    Absolutely smashing shots. Love the flowers with the snow capped mountain.
    Canadian Rockies will be on my next year's travel wish list.
