Favourite Western Canadian Photos

I searched and didn't find a thread featuring photos exclusively of Western Canada. Those of us fortunate enough to ride this piece of motorcycle heaven, post up photos of your favourite places, with or without your bike. To get things started, here are a few from last year's riding season, with captions explaining where.

Looking west from the Waiparous rest area off Highway 40, north of Cochrane



Looking east from the pass just east of Highway 40 on Highway 532 southwest of Longview



McLean Creek area, southwest of Bragg Creek



Plateau Mountain from Highway 532 southwest of Longview



Abraham Lake on Highway 11 west of Rocky Mountain House



Highway 11 heading west to Saskatchewan River Crossing



Columbia Icefields on Highway 93



Looking south at the Icefields on Highway 93



The view north of Highway 16 east of Hinton



Bow Lake on Highway 93



Banff and Mount Rundle



Cheers, David

Great shots. Lived in the rockies most of my life and just don't get tired of looking at that scenery.

We are truly blessed

My other great loves after my wife and adventure riding are sailing and hiking, so I have spent a lot of time up and down Vancouver Island in my boat and did the West Coast Trail a couple of years ago. I never tire of that part of the world.

Your photos convince me I need to spend a week or so on the island with my MC this year.

Cheers, David

Wonderful thread. The timing is ideal because it seems to be in step with everyone starting to plan their summer adventures. Keep them coming.

Ok, maybe it's because I live on the flattest continent, but how do you guys keep your eyes on the road with all that awesome mountain scenery passing by ? More please.

Your best bet is to join a photo hosting site like Smugmug or Photobucket and upload your pics to that site... Then it becomes easy as you click and copy the image code off your image of choice from that site and then paste it into your post on here...After a bit of practice you get quicker at it and can easily drop many images into 1 post in the blink of an eye...
I mostly use Photobucket which allows a certain amount of bandwidth for free but it seems to me that the images loose a bit of sharpness in the transition... No matter though, good enough for photo sharing...

Picture attachments

As Gunnerbuck said, the only way now to attach photos is via a Smugmug or Photobucket type account. Here is the link explaining the process in detail. Note: Option 1 is no longer available. Scroll down and read Option 2.

Once you have uploaded photos to a service like Photobucket the process is quick and easy.
