The weather has been pretty miserable lately here in the mountains. Which is a good thing, because there were a few wildfires mother nature started that she needed to put out.
I decided to throw a rain coat on and take a hike up the Little Beehive beside Lake Louise. I like to hike in that area in the rain because seeing all the tourists without rain gear makes me feel warm and comfy..
I thought it would start coming down hard at some point, but when I had made it to the top of Little Beehive I still wasn't soaked, so I decided to continue to the summit of Mt St. Piran.
About 3/4 of the way up it started to rain pretty heavily, but luckily it was right as I was passing an awesome rock cave complete with wildflowers and the perfect view! Not a bad place to hang out. I forgot I was hauling my tripod up with me so I proceeded to pile some rocks to set my camera on for a time lapse.
Unfortunately by the time I reached the summit the clouds had filled in all around me. With no sign of the weather getting any better, and many signs of it getting worse, I decided to begin the descent.
I didn't notice until after, but you can see my white van in the parking lot in the middle of the time lapse image.
Here is the time lapse and a few photos from the day!
