Alberta's skies are endlessly fascinating. During our three days visiting family we spent a lot of hours in the car. Albertans think nothing of driving an hour here or there. I enjoyed looking out the window admiring the ever-changing cloud formations.
These photos were taken at our nephew's acreage, around sunset.
Golden fields below, dark green bands of trees and rolling hills and then the sky, big and beautiful.
We left the prairies this morning and are spending a couple of days in the Rockies. It's cold just now. The drizzling rain in town translates to fresh snow at higher elevations. I included a couple of rooftops in the photo to show how close the snow is. Colder weather is on the way.
We did a short hike this afternoon and have a longer one planned for tomorrow. The temperature is supposed to fall to 1 degree Celsius tonight. Brrrrr. Variable skies, indeed!
