Chasing Auroras and the Milky Way

In the wee hours of Saturday morning, we headed out about 45 minutes south of Calgary to try our hand at some shots of the northern lights and the Milky Way. There was only a limited time window where we could get decent shots, so I didn't get very many keepers. But these three were among my faves.

Spring Skiing and an Ugly Snowman

I'm hobbling around like a 75 year old today, after a hard day of riding at Lake Louise yesterday. It may 'officially' be spring, but one would hardly know it from the full day of snowfall on mountain. Terrain was hard to see in the flat light, but we still managed to ski 36km total distance, and 6.8km of total vertical.

Not to be outdone, it then snowed in Calgary today as well (that heavy wet snowball snow)... so of course we had to make an ugly snowman. See for yourself below.

And because old man winter refuses to go away, it snowed again today.
