I am busy working on a matching pair of fingerless mittens for the Leah Cowl, but due to the general busyness of life, I have nothing to show just now. With that in mind I thought I’d share a few photos from our trip to Canada last July.
We flew up to Seattle, then took Amtrack into Vancouver, BC where I had a nice visit with Monica, before boarding an overnight train to the heart of the Canadian Rockies.
The view from the train, once the morning came, was spectacular! Mountains, rivers, lakes, waterfalls, we saw it all….except for large wildlife…no bears, no moose.
We travelled by train as far as Jaspar, then by tour bus down to Lake Louise, the Columbian Ice Fields, and Banff, with stops at more places than I can name, but all were incredibly beautiful! Several tested my mental strength…the Sky Walk, the gondola (especially the gondola!!) and the 33% grade unpaved, slushy/icy path up to the glacier, to name a few. 😬
We also had a chance to drive up to Edmonton, where we enjoyed wonderful hospitality from and a visit with friends who live nearby….and of course had to spend some time wandering through the Edmonton Mall (wow…just wow) before heading back to Calgargy for a quick visit with friends there before heading home.
