The morning after a winter storm blew through the Canadian Rockies, the temperatures went from a balmy – 4 celcius all the way to – 21 overnight. The result was mist coming off the warm open water of the creeks and rivers of the area blanketing much of the creek edges in frost. I snowshoed around the Natural Bridge area in Yoho National Park a little bit in order to find something a little more unique. I didn’t get too far off the road before I came across this little sapling trying to make a go of it in the harshest of Canadian conditions. A simple scene that spoke to me of perseverance.
