Along the #1 Highway outside of Banff, Alberta, we saw these twin tunnels built over the road at regular intervals down the highway. These are walkways over the highway for wild animals to traverse from one side of the highway to the other side without being hit by vehicles and they make the roads safer for them and for the vehicles and people who travel the roads.
They are completely fenced in so that the path they take from one side of the road to the other is clear for them and safe to walk over. Fences along the side of the highway are also constructed to keep the animals away from the roads.
These photos were taken on our recent roadtrip from B.C. to Alberta to visit family.
They also make a pretty good frame for taking a photo through!
The skies were partly cloudy and the further we got into Alberta the more the skies got blue. We left the cloudy skies behind in B.C.!
And since being here in Alberta I have found a lot of things that bring me joy.
Visiting my family
Seeing my kids
Walks in beautiful parks
Not a drop of rain
Crisp clear sunny bright days.
Yummy food, probably too much yummy food!
Sleeping in every day
Coffee, Coffee Coffee.
Meeting some new people
I'm trying to be grateful to the police officer who gave me a ticket for a burned out headlight!!
