The canoe cabin at Lake Louise
(please click on an image for a higher resolution version)
Paddling the red canoes on Lake Louise are a well-known draw for visitors. As sunset faded, I turned away from the glacier and looked towards the cabin where the canoes are rented, and at night, where they are stacked in tidy rows on the dock in front.
Prairie Landscapes: Abandoned Shack
This weathered tack outbuilding is on the edge of the Tsuu T’ina Nation near Bragg Creek. The trees that the building backs onto serve as the line where the prairie gives way to the eastern edge of Kananaskis and the Rocky Mountains.
I detour past this building throughout the year and this week when I drove by I thought it was framed really well by the dormant bushes and leafless trees all covered by scattered snow. It has always struck me as a lonely, forgotten shack and on this day, the surroundings seemed to match.
