​Being in a huge rugged landscape in the mountains when there's no one else around, can you make you feel really small and insignificant. Some people really don't like that feeling at all, ​while for others, that's exactly part of the appeal of spending time in the mountains. Just being surrounded by rocks and cliffs and peaks that have been there for hundreds of thousands or even millions of years can also make your problems and worries seem small and insignificant in comparison.
One of my best trips in the Canadian Rockies was earlier this year up at the @alpineclubcan's Bow Hut. My friend Alain was over from Belgium visiting Canada for the first time and I suggested that we go do something in the mountains above Bow Lake. We decided we'd hike up to Bow Glacier Falls, then up to the hut, stay overnight, then on the way down we'd stop at Iceberg Lake (where the Falls come from), and finally come back out at Bow Lake. It was a Monday and Tuesday in mid-September and it turned out we were the only ones staying in the hut. After dropping off our bags, we headed up to the glacier and "The Onion" and a tarn beneath it and explored the rocks until dusk. If you take a close look, you can see Alain looking small and insignificant in the vast landscape.

Well winter is almost here and another summer is finished. As usual for this time of year I am telling myself I should spend more time in the #mountains next summer. Who knows maybe my re-found passion for taking photos will be the perfect vessel to get me there more.
