Castle Mountain and Bow River

Eons ago…the universe was born.

Sometimes by starlight when the quiet sets in you feel as if you’ve descended into a little bit of heaven.

Behold, Castle Mountain and Bow River.

“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” – Carl Sagan


We booked a night photo tour with Dani from Banff Photo Workshops, she’s personable, fun, and helpful. We’d love to book more tours with her in the future. We paid for 1 since Vic is the photographer and you can bring a non photo buddy. Vic didn’t think he’d learn anything new but he did.

  1. The physics behind the idea of those heavier elements being born in collapsing stars is kind of mind-boggling, not to mention the question of how they got from there to here. It’s a strange and wonderful universe.
