This is called Whirlpool Point. It's along the David Thompson Highway (aka Highway 11) and it's where the North Saskatchwan River makes a whirlpool. Whirlpool Point is close to the Banff Park gate and almost a two-hour drive west of Rocky Mountain House.
I've lived here for 21 years now and it never ceases to give me a thrill to know this scenery is in my back yard.
What I can get to in an easy drive some people might only see once in their lives. I am aware every day how blessed I am to live here.
