Visit narrative:
First station of the 2014 MLP season. Started at Elbow firebase, heading southwest, 7km on highway 22. We followed a well-used path from the parking lot down to the river, about 0.5km to the highest point on the rock wall path. We placed the tripod behind the railing a few feet below the highest point of the rock wall. The location was fairly easy to find, but we spent a bit of time checking potential spots along the path; we realized that the likely location of the historical photo did not match that of the 2008 repeat, so we conducted third views from both locations.
Weather narrative:
Clear sunny skies with wee gusts of wind. Cloud cover moving in as we moved into 1897 repeat, darker conditions with shadows.

Visit narrative:
After a quick break back at the fire station, we departed again to find the shot at the Elbow Falls. Certainly did not have to go very far, or hike very far for that matter. From the base we drove west down Hwy. 66 to the Elbow Falls day use/ lookout area. From there we followed the cement walkway to the falls viewpoint. The same walkway that hundreds of tourists from Calgary and all over flock to every weekend, and, of course, where Wheeler took this shot from the guard rail paths.
