A Billion Years of History

Striata in the Smoke, Rocky Mountains, Icefields Parkway, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada
Tempting it is
To call this landscape

No life
No green
No creatures

(Or so it seems)

But apparent are
Rich textures of rock
And a billion years
Of history
Before a human
Ever walked

Strata and Smoke
Rocky Mountains
Icefields Parkway
Banff National Park
Alberta, Canada
