Water: essential for life. And also for this month's photo blogging challenge. But how to photograph? Read on...
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.
After a great day paddling Upper Kananaskis Lake, we headed for another big lake for our next kayaking adventure. Lake Minnewanka is the longest lake in Banff National Park, and a popular choice for mountain biking, hiking, boating, scuba diving, backcountry camping, photography and skating!
We opted for the third Vermillion Lake for our first-ever kayak adventure! Under blue sky and sunshine, we enjoyed the cool breeze across the water and the company of a Common Loon.
