    I am going to have 7 to 10 days in the Canadian Rockies coming from Victoria, BC to travel around in a truck/camper.

    I know the area a bit but was wondering if you folks had a few "must shoot" spots, especially ones out of the way a bit. Unfortunately I can't hike like I used to, but 4 to 5 km would be doable. I don't mind a bit of gravel road, especially if there is good bush camping.

    It would be nice to shoot something different (other than Moraine Lake, Lake Louise, etc.) Maybe I would stay on the BC side.

    Am I likely going to see bad weather if I leave it until late September? (though new snow would be cool.)

    Taking my new Nikon D90, 16-85mm, 35mm and my old Olympus E-1 with polarizer filters. Can't wait!

    Thanks, ....... Dave

    First of all, if you're going to visit any of the parks mentiond here be aware of the Parks Canada Photo/Video Policy. While this policy is meant for commercial photogrpahers, there have been reports of park staff attempting to enforce it on Joe Amateur Photog.

    I would say there's a good chance of bad weather in late September - and an even better chance of thunder storms in August.

    Consider adding to your equipment list: A GOOD tripod, as well as ND and Graduated ND filters.
