Spring Snowstorm over Two Jack Lake

I drove around the Minnewanka Loop in the Banff National Park this morning on the search for wildlife, bears in particular.  The loop starts at the easternmost Banff townsite exit and goes uphill to Lake Minnewanka.  Along the way you can occasionally see wolves, bears, moose, elk, bighorn sheep and deer.  The snow was falling with great enthusiasm by 8 am this morning.  It made finding wildlife a bit more challenging but I loved how the sky looked filled with these huge flakes.

In the image above I was on a bluff looking over Two Jack Lake towards Mount Rundle.  This stand of trees is on a small point that juts out prominently.  With the snow this was the only feature of the lake that could be seen.  The trees looked like they were painted with brush strokes and this image shows some of that.
