Photography Information

When to Go: We like to go when spring just springs before the crowds show up in the Canadian Rockies. Fall is a great time too. I would try to avoid peak time in the Canadian Rockies which starts about mid-June and goes through August. There are a lot of bus people, and they do not care if they walk right into your picture. Go before they are everywhere or after.

Lens: This area is a wide-angle lens location, but you should have your zoom lens handy in case you see some wildlife. There are some birds at this location.

Gear:  Bring your tripod. There are moving waters here.  Don’t forget your ND filter if you want to shoot moving waters.  We found a small amount of running marsh waters here in June.

Gear List at a Glance: Circular polarizing filter, neutral density filters, tripod, shutter release, wide-angle, and zoom lens.
