FIRE

What started as a small grass fire, exploded into an enormous fast-moving inferno headed straight for town. We traveled into the large black line of smoke that crossed the highway.

A few hours later we heard on the radio the little town where we ate lunch is under a state of emergency, evacuations are underway and all highway traffic was shut down.

Shortly after driving through the black smoke of death, we unfortunately saw another fiery hell. A roadside house engulfed in flames with no chance of saving the house.

ICE

Scenery changes as elevation rises. Large walls of granite slabs line the gigantic passageway to Banff and British Columbia. Leaves are changing and Mother Nature has already dusted the peaks with snow.
