The beautiful Canadian Rocky Mountain's.
I am going to Canada in 3 weeks time and although this time I will not be going to see the Rockie Mountains I thought you might like to see some of the photos I took the last time I was there. Everywhere you look there is a photo oppertunity, stunningly beautiful. I went in July and the week before I got there it had been snowing very hard, and the mountains were covered in snow. But while in Banff the temperature soared to 90 and all the snow started to melt causing the river to run like a rapid in Banff. Lucky enough there was no damage done.
This is Banff, a few more photos later.
I stayed with my friend Joan who lives in Victoria on Vancouver island. We got the ferry from the island then we started our Journey in Vancouver and decided to visit Grouse Mountain which is the high which is on the left of this photo
This is a view of Vancouver looking down from Grouse Mountain.. We stayed overnight in Vancouver and left the following morning for out journey to Banff where we stayed for 7 days. It took us 2 full days to get there from Vancouver. I am glad I wasn't driving.
You cannot go to far before you start to see these enormous trucks
That evening we stayed in a lovely B&B in Revelstoke. It is going to be one of the premium sking resorts in Canada. such a pretty town. To get here from Vancouver took us 8 hours, Mountains all the way and the distances are mind blowing.
This beautiful lake was near Revelstoke. The following day we had an early start for our journey to Banff.
We are getting nearer to Banff.
At last we are there, It took narly 9 hours. Have to find the B&B . We were so tired. (They are a good place to stay if you ever decide to go to see the Canadian Rockies).
After a good nights sleep, we explored Banff and met some charming children who with their parents were dancing in national costume.
We saw some typical Canadian houses
One of the days we were there took the Cable Car to the top of one of the mountains and had lunch in a revolving resturant. This is the view of Banff from the top
Went to the local station to see the Rocky Mountainare come in. These travel right across Canada, starting in Toronto and ending in Vancouver. But it would cost you an arm and a leg to do this trip.
Another day we went to see the beautiful and famous Lake Louise
Another time we went to Moraine Lake. There was lots of driftwood there. There were still couple of little icebergs on the Lake
Then it was bye to Banff and back on the road.
Farewell to The Rocky mountains and farewell to this lonley goat whu was started to shed his wool. Poor thing, he did look sorry for himself.
That was a fabulous trip. Hope our next one will be as good as I will only be in Canada for 5 days before we go on another 18 day cruise. We only see one an other every 2 yrs, so looking forward to seeing Joan. I hope you enjoyed seeing these Beautiful Rocky Mountains with me. Pam
