From West to East

We headed east for a 2 week roadtrip, leaving just before the snow starts to fall across the prairies and winter sets in. Most of the photos I took are of sunsets and sunrises, which seemed to be in full force both there and back. Here's the start of the trip....
 Sunrise in the Rocky Mountains.
The sockeye salmon spawned in greater numbers than scientists have seen in many decades this year. Swimming up from the Pacific ocean to lay their eggs in tributaries off the Fraser river, they then die. Carcasses riddled the creek sides, while the waters were full of live ones looking for a spot to safely leave their offspring. It was amazing. 

Another sunrise east of Alberta into the prairies.
 Destination: Saskatchewan......
