One more return to winter in Banff

The snow returned for a weekend long storm.  I was in Banff for a night and this was the town on Saturday morning.  Heavy snow then and more since then.

The night before I was out for a walk and a friend at the bus stop suggested a photo of the storm.  The flash lit up the flakes of snow between me and them and illustrate this spring storm’s intensity.

A herd of elk fanned out on the edge of the first Vermilion Lake and, with a slight break in the low cloud, one flank of Mount Rundle came into view to make for a nice scene.
