Spray Valley Provincial Park

The Smith-Dorrien Trail is a gravel road which winds through the mountains and offers spectacular views along the way. I stopped to capture this view of a lake surrounded by autumn colours, and a snow squall in the distance.

The Smith-Dorrien Trail is 60 kilometers long (37 miles) and joins up with Peter Lougheed Provincial Park to the south. There are many wonderful hiking trails along the way to explore.

Hello Janice,
a very special scene well shown, It makes me think of Van Gogh upon looking at the tall pine trees at both sides of your photo.
A simple view but very attractive.
Well seen in good details especially the mountains at the back.


Hi Janice,
It's a very beutiful and peaceful landscape. I have heard a lot about the Smith-Dorian trail. I will have to put it on my to-do list. Thanks for posting.

  • Great

Hi Janice,
You have captured the rockies with their heads in the clouds. This is a wonderful scene superbly captured my friend. Thanks for sharing this and your humor.

Gorgeous! Looks so real as though I could walk right into the picture. Perfect exposure Janice and very well taken.
