Alberta Foothills Weather

September 20

Just got back from a little vacation in Waterton Lakes National Park, and it looks like it was pretty nice here while we were gone. Interesting weather they have down there in the southwest corner of Alberta. We had beautiful clear skies for the trip down, but it was very smoky which cut down on the photo ops a bit. Still an amazing trip down the trunk road from Longview to Coleman then Blairmore to Beaver Mines. Not the best road, but unbeatable scenery of you love the mountains. There was a big low pushing in from BC and as it came across the mountains we were treated to all kinds of upslope convective action from Sunday night to Tuesday. EnviroCan was calling for rain or worse most of the time were were there, but for the most part we had sun with a few showers. Whenever the wind picked up, which was often, the chill coming off upper Waterton lake made us run for cover. By Tuesday night the rain settled in and when we got up to head home Wednesday morning, everything was covered in snow. We drove back through flurries all the way through Pincher Creek and almost to Ft. Macleod before the ground was snow free again. Got home and it was beautiful here, sun was out, but the wind followed us back. Brr.
