The trail at Edith Cavell in Jasper National Park winds through trees stunted by chilly breeze off the glaciers above
Although the Rocky Mountains of Alberta mark the boundary of Cascadia, I wanted to share this free texture collection from our midwest neighboring region. The ten textures include bark from the conifer forests of the Rockies, lichen-covered rocks from the alpine scree, water calm and rough, and stone worn by water.
