Snow in Alberta in May

Snow on the Mountains.

After three days based at the fantastic Aurum Lodge near Nordegg, Alberta, we headed for Banff National Park and the continuation of our drive west. It was snowing when we got up but, hey, it’s only May, in Canada, and we’re hardy.

These photos are all from the western end of the David Thompson Highway and were taken with my iPhone through the car window while Mr. IDWE was driving.

The forest fire here had burned several years before but we were all very aware of the tremendous damage that had befallen Fort McMurray, Alberta, earlier in the month.

Forest Fires were here.

The snow continued until noon but the day remained gray and overcast.
