We awoke this morning to a wonderful
winter wonderland. Moe's ramp was like a bobsled ride.
We enjoyed the beauty of fresh fallen snow as we traveled
from Lake Louise to Salmon Arm.

The day turned gorgeous, we had
waterfalls, lakes, streams, and rivers accompanied
by trains throughout our 200 miles of travel.
Salmon Arm is warm with lilacs, iris, and
poppies in bloom. We're camped by a creek
in a green meadow. Quite a change from our
snowy morning.

Visiting our old ski haunts.
Dick at Sunshine. This area has grown and
the staff tell us they will build a whole new
lodge at this site.

Lake Louise. Yes, still in the Parka.
We had thought about kayaking here
but alas, unless we had an ice pick, we
would not be going anywhere.

Dick and I enjoyed the Chateau Lake Louise.
With wonderful harp music, a great view, and
a cosmo. What could be better.

Enjoying our trip to Banff in the middle of the Canadian Rockies. Oh the happy ski memories. This quiet little village has turned into a bustling tourist town. This pic is of the Columbia River .

Ah, a little extra water so Dick is doing due diligence in keeping our vehicles spick and span. Not an easy task with the daily downpour of rain, sleet or snow. Loving life.

Headed out from the US. We spent our last USA night in Eureka at a laundromat. What could be better clean clothes and a free night. Bought a few groceries and filled up on gas awaiting the Canadian prices.

Crossed the border without a problem. Yeah!!!

Big horn sheep slowed our travels. They are magnificent creatures. We spent a couple nights in Dry Gulch Provincial Park. Its Canadian Memorial Day so lots of activity. Enjoyed the
Radium Hot Springs. A long hot soak plus an endless shower is a great treat while out on the road.
Enjoying Life

We're off again for another adventure. After months of planning and packing everything but the kitchen sink (they do have grocery stores between Phx and Alaska, don't they?) we're headed North. 1st night in Flagstaff due to closing of I 40 due to high winds. Memories of Quartzsite come flashing back. No tornado warnings, yet. We're spending the night close to the train tracks so we know we're at a great campsite. Off to Lake Powell tomorrow.
