who had told us of the drive were spot on with their recommendation. The drive is spectacular. Once again snow- capped peaks seem to

Ran into an interesting porter at the hotel, Brent Antonson, and chatted with him for a while when he delivered our luggage to our room. He's a world traveler - been to 46 countries already.
