Photo and caption by Erin Riedel
Last fall I traveled to the Canadian Rockies and took a road trip from Banff to Jasper National park. I took this photo on the way up the Icefields Parkway, shortly after leaving the town of Banff. I wish I could say this was the view after a long hike, but this was simply the view from the side of the road! I managed to capture the exact moment where the wind quieted down and the lake turned to glass.
