Natural Bridge Yoho, I LOVE THIS SPOT!! The combination of the solid smooth rock with the soft flowing water. Toss in a roar that shakes the body and it is just amazing. A perfect print for a living room or a basement den. Click here to order your print Paterson Photography / First Choice Photo … Read more

Red Rock Canyon, Lost Horse & Pass Creek

Driving up to Red Rock is one thing, stopping to explore is another. There are so many places to stop on the way up that it can take an entire day to get up to Red Rock.

A stop heading to Red Rock Canyon
Lost Horse Creek

I have a few favorite places to stop. Some can be busy but if you go a few feet from the road you will seldom see another person. Each place also has its own features that makes it unique.

On the way to Red Rock the scenery is amazing

One of my favorite stops is Lost Horse Creek. It is a mini Red Rock Canyon without the people. Hundreds of people stop there everyday but few get out of their cars. It it is sheltered and very quiet.

Red Rock Canyon – After the fire

Please subscribe to my Youtube channel and like this video!

I wanted to get up to Red Rock Canyon as it finally opened to vehicles for the first time since the fires of 2017. So on the day it opened I was off to explore.

I can truly say it is as amazing as ever it just looks different since the fire. Things are really growing and lots of animals. I was fortunate as there where not a lot of people that were up there. You could tell that many were waiting for it to open and some had no idea what it was suppose to look like. After about an hour I had enough of the people and had to go someplace that people never stop. So I went down the road a few kilometers and found a secluded spot to pull off and have lunch. Yes most of the larger trees are gone but there is so much else to see and experience!!!!

If your going…

Slow Down!!

What you see when you slow down!! I was out for a walk the other night at Belly River Campground in Waterton Lakes National Park. I have to walk slowly with my lung condition and this night was no different with the heat and humidity. As I stopped to catch my breath I could hear … Read more

If you are looking for an amazing road trip may I suggest Red Rock Coulee.  I have driven past on highway 3 a number of times and always wondered what was there, now I know. It is well worth the drive for a day or even if you want to stay in the area for a couple days.

Will be heading back that way soon for some more pictures and exploring!  Funny thing is that all the rock pictures that I took and I like the flower ones the best!

This place is amazing, a little out of the way and NO services. There is one broken picnic table and that is all the extras that are there. But it is well worth the drive. I do suggest that you go WELL prepared. When it is hot out this place is even hotter. If it is dry this place is drier. When it is cool this place is COLD!! There is no shelter to get out of the weather unless you hide behind a rock and they are not that big!
