Photographer's Note

Wide, U-shaped glacial valleys are typical for the Rocky Mountains and the last bits of the huge glaciers that carved them are still found hidden at higher elevations. This one is the valley of the Kananaskis River, in the provincial park with the same name. Less known and spectacular than the Banff National Park, the Kananaskis Provincial Park doesn't suffer of overcrowding even at the height of the touristy season. The mountains here are only slightly over 3000 m high, but they are very steep, with narrow, jagged ridges and sharp and loose sedimentary rock - another trademark of the Rocky Mountains. The sedimentary layers, brought to strange angles and contortions during geologic times, are clearly visible in this image.
