... in 2006. He tried to eat Li. Jym wanted to see the dog and apparently you can even check the dog out and take him for a walk which would have truly made the experience perfect for us. But alas it was not to be.
Then for the end of the day, we took a freezing cold trip outside where we could stroll along the quiet shoreline in the darkness and look up at the magnificent night sky devoid of all the usual light pollution in the US. Nothing ...

Finally after a good 5 hours of being in the nature we decided it was time for food and a long awaited nap. Something I have not indulged in much on my vacation. We went into Banff and decided to try this place called Nourish. It is all Vegetarian (no fish or meat) and cash which I was not prepared for so we had to dumb down our selections a bit but it was still pricey for lunch ...

... gain on the hike was actually well
over 1,000 feet, so we ended up a little more tired than expected, but once we

After the hike we went over to Morraine Lake, another
beautiful lake you can see in ...
... via Mirror Lake..
All in all a fantastic days hiking with yet again more to see than my brain will ever remember.. thank god for the digital camera!!
I don't have the vocabulary to describe everything I've seen so far. and words like amazing and epic mist be getting overused but every where i go just seems to keep getting better and bigger.
Next up Banff and Canmore.
