Apparently there’s something about pelicans for me. They are such a photogenic bird. I’m thinking that may be enough of pelicans though. While I have plenty more, my blog might start being mistaken for a blog that’s just about pelicans.
So I mentioned yesterday that we spent the weekend outside Banff NP. Well, it wasn’t just us in the Banff area. I went out to do some shooting on Sunday and it looked like most of Calgary was taking advantage of the last long weekend before winter rolls in.
If you’re going to stay overnight in the National Park or visit any of the hikes/locations outside the town of Banff, you need a park pass. If you don’t have an annual pass (we do), you need to pick up a pass on your way in. As we approached the entrance, we came upon what looked like a hundred cars queuing up to buy passes. We thought we’d made a mistake heading into the park until we saw the lane for people with annual passes and just sailed on past.
As we passed by all the parked cars, the kids started saying something along the lines of “Haha! Suckers!”. I told them that was wrong and we shouldn’t say things like that. Of course, I may, possibly have been thinking the same thing. Probably not, but you know, just maybe.
