The Morant Express

While visiting Banff National Park in the winter of 2016, I considered this iconic location a must visit. Not knowing the schedule for Canadian Pacific, I incorrectly assumed that a train would pass by every hour or so. In the end, I ended up sitting here for over 6 hours waiting for one train. Throughout that time the mountains in the distance would continuously be swallowed by clouds and then quickly reappear.

As luck would have it, a few minutes before the first train arrived the clouds broke revealing the mountains; and why this location has been long sought after by photographers. Hopefully someday Canadian Pacific will once again run a steam engine through Morant's Curve, if and when that happens, I will drop everything I am doing to be there for that!
