This month we got the most enjoyment out of life when spending time outdoors searching for birds to photograph. Between Calgary, Canmore and Banff we spotted at least three new-to-us birds. And we're getting more competent using our new camera gear for bird photography.
When water levels are high enough, the first and second Vermilion Lakes are connected by a channel that parallels Vermilion Lakes Road. Together, the two lakes create about a 10 km paddling loop, with lots of opportunities for bird spotting/photography, surrounded by beautiful mountains.
