Spring time in the Canadian Rocky Mountains is a special time of year, especially in our unspoilt corner of Jasper National Park. Whilst the skiers and snowboarders are ripping around in the sun, getting a goggle tan and enjoying the spring snow conditions, the trails in the valley are dry, the rivers are flowing and the forest is coming alive with the sounds of the waking wildlife.
Our local landscape and wildlife photographer Rob Johnson has already been out adventuring to bring you some amazing snaps of a few of the animals you might see at this time of year. This begs the question, with the option to extend your stay for an extra 3-5weeks, why don't you stick around after your ski or snowboard instructor course and experience the wildlife in Canada for yourself?
Check out what Rob's been up to over the past couple of weeks:
It's been a full winter of incredible adventures to find the best landscape shots around Jasper National Park and in the blink of an eye I’m back with the Grizzlies of the Mt. Robson Valley. This young male had just fallen asleep in front of me, after I had followed him all day. He only woke when the sound of my feet cracked the dry brush beneath me. Check out those Claws! As my work in the Mt. Robson Valley and along the Fraser River continues, I’ll be sure to see my new friend again.
After spending countless hours tracking this herd of Elk over the past week, I captured this outstanding shot when the herd crossed the Athabasca River to get to a new feeding patch on the other side. The time and patience it takes to get a photo like this is worth it when you’re able to capture a moment in time, that most never see. More to come from the Elk Project later this week. Get out and Explore!
