Spring - A beautiful,enigmatic progression in the Rockies


Not always under consideration as a time to come, Spring rewards with a broad array of sights to delight visitors.The Canadian Rockies have a beauty all their own at anytime of year and Spring in Banff National Park is one time of year with many stunning sights.

In the mountains Spring can take its time arriving, but sights like this are part of the enigma and charm .

Longer days and warmer temperatures make Spring a fine time to be here. Sure we get loads of snow and cold temps in the Winter ( and that makes for super skiing conditions) but Spring brings the change and the outdoors are beckoning - check this source - Average Temperature in Celsius and Fahrenheit

The sun stays up longer and the trees and plants blossom with growth . Green is everywhere and in a vast array of Shades.

And just for added eye candy, the peaks and ridges stay snowcapped giving that awe inspiring Canadian Rockies rugged mountain look!

The spots of snow let you know you are at elevation, the mountains reach higher still and the snow adds spice to your Spring view. By this time, the valley floor in the Rockies and here in Banff National Park is long clear of snow ( unless a surprise storm drops in ! ) and you can sit and marvel at the wonder of this creation . ( This shot is from early evening )

Longer days, Spring temperatures, green growth abounding - you can take a walk after dinner and see scenes like this verdant meadow. This shot was taken close to 9PM and look where the sun is!
