Lake OHara, Yoho National Park is a magnificent place. Every day was an immersion, an extraordinary adventure, both physically and visually. Senses intensify as you enter the alpine above the tree lines knowing you won’t get back anytime soon. The window of time to paint goes quick as you must begin the long trek back to base camp at Lake O’Hara before sundown. In the evenings we sat on the shores of the lake watching a late summer light show – the ever changing curtain of light on rock theatre. Charlie Easton, his wife Lisa, Liz Wiltzen and myself spent a few days up in the land of the mountain king in mid August.
This place is so powerful that to capture it is delusion. The spirit of the experience is all one could hope to express. I loved it up there where egos are in check and humility reigns supreme….unless you’re truly thick. Below are some pics of the trip. Also check out this youtube video Charlie put together of the trip, enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3U6hg5GSP6c
