nature, Photography Cloudy Rockies Oct 30, 2022 Lynette d'Arty-Cross 16 Comments We encountered a lot of cloud on our recent Rocky Mountain transit. Low lying clouds. Actually, our higher altitude has brought us closer to them! Nearly there. From the road the clouds appear to be mist, but these are probably snow clouds at the mountain peaks. Happy Sunday.

Almost ski season. I hear Marmot Basin had 37 cm base and still snowing on Friday. I miss those days. Glad your trip has gone well Lynette. Allan
Thanks, Allan. I don’t downhill ski any more either. My knees just don’t have the strength!
How long a drive is it?
From NWT to our home in Penticton it’s 29-30 hours depending on road conditions or construction. The photos show the half-way point of the drive. Cheers.
I assume you don’t do it all at once!
Oh no! We usually complete it with one overnight stop but this time we did two as the weather further north got a bit dicey (0° with a snow/rain mix falling) and we didn’t want to drive it at night.
That’s a beautiful drive any time of year (as long as the road is clear).
Agreed; it’s so beautiful and impressive. And yes, as long as the road is clear!
Thank you very much. 😛
ooh! spooky! I love those winding road perspectives 🙂
Yes, I do as well. Definitely a spooky perspective for this time of year!
So gorgeous. I just love mountains. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Lori. You’re welcome. We have been very fortunate to drive this route on a regular basis. We have seen it in every season, and it’s stunning every time. Cheers.
Even with the clouds, the mountains still look so majestic. Hopefully it didn’t impact the visibility while driving.
The lowest we saw the clouds was about what you see in the photos. The drive was excellent all the way through the mountains; we didn’t have any issues there at all. We did have dicey conditions in northern Alberta as we got closer to 60° N latitude. I love the mountains in any season – always so beautiful.
