Oh Canada Part 1  
So, I finally managed to upload some of my Canada trip pictures (Big headache, scrapbook and Flickr and Photobucket all stubbornly refused to cooperate for weeks!). Don't wish to bombard you all with them, so here is a selection from the road trip featuring Kamloops, Jasper, the open road in between, a chipmunk, a bear and some mounties:

For me, this was just fantastic. Miles of open road, hardly any cars in sight, and me behind the wheel of a V8 Dodge Charger. >_<

The First Nations museum we went to in Kamloops. I think they thought we were mad for going out at 3 in the afternoon - it was very hot.

More road, more mountains *grin*


You'd think at some point the breathtaking scenery would stop being breathtaking. But it didn't.

Apparently this glacier is as thick as the Eiffel Tower is tall.

This friendly little fella came right up and posed for a photo while we were in Jasper National Park.

Bear!!!

This guy crossed the road right in front of us as we made our way from Jasper to Calgary. Luckily he moved slow enough for sis to snap him!

The gondola ride up Sulfur mountain in Banff. Very pretty and worth it, but I was terrified. Sis was also terrified, so not entirely sure why we did it...

This mall in Calgary just made us both laugh, it was made to look like an Egyptian temple :)

Very empty road to Lake Louise (we took the scenic route after I misread a detour sign on the highway!)

Lake Louise. Truly spectacular.

What was really amazing was I managed to get these two shots with nobody in them. The place was jammed with tourists!
