Another day in paradise.  Exited British Columbia to Alberta with a natural art gallery surrounding us.  I wish I had more time to stop for pictures.  We stayed at the full hookup area of the park and we almost have the place to ourselves.  I could live with all this quiet and beauty!  Cassie has been on the lookout for bears and wildlife but all we've seen are deer and elk.  I saw a black bear on the way in to Banff but no Grizzley.  
I've heard the Canadian Rockies are more beautiful than the U.S. and it's true.  Banff should be on everyone's bucket list and I want to return.  Here are some sites:  Lake Louise, Lake Moraine, Nautural Bridge Water Fall, Emerald Lake.  Presently we're at latitude N51 and having approximately 16 hours of daylight.  Temperatures 40-50 and with drizzle on and off.

I hope you get to spend a few days in Banff/Jasper area since it is so spectacular. It sounds a little chilly there right now... but I was there late Sept/October one year with about the same temps.

Keep an eye out for those Moose!!!

I bought a can of salmon today and immediately thought of you guys fishing . . I could almost see Cassie & Max galloping through the river chasing salmon!! and Debbie having a salmon on the line and you scooping it up in a net!! (all in slow motion of course!)

Jim and Debbie,
It is so beautiful. Thank you for sharing. The weather has been horrible since you left. I sure hope you plan on stopping back by on your way home. We could use some sunshine again. Take care.
