Southern Alberta - The Road Trip
This photo finds me south of Cardston Alberta, and just a few kilometers north of the US border, where I was in to my 4th day of wandering the backroads of southern Alberta, on a photo shoot.
In this photo. Chief Mountain, just to the southwest of my location, and even with all the smoke in the air from a forest fire burning in Idaho, is still very recognizable.
Chief Mountain is located in Montana on the eastern border of Glacier National Park and the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. The mountain is one of the most prominent peaks and rock formations along the Rocky Mountain Front ranges.
The peak is easily seen from Montana and Alberta due to the rapid 5,000 foot altitude gain over the Great Plains which are immediately east of the mountain. Despite the mountain's being mostly in Montana, the distinctive eastern face quickly becomes hidden as one travels south into Montana, but remains very easy to see on clear days over much of southern Alberta. Chief Mountain is one of the most photographed mountains in the region due to its unique nature.
