Well folks we have had a great day out. It started here with pouring rain! That's me putting it mildly, but I do believe it's been horrible at home too. Anyway we decided by 10 am it's was looking like it was clearing up so we got our selves ready and into the car, we headed to the Jasper Nstional Park, as we wanted to see places that we saw in October 2013, that would look different at this time of the year plus we had to pay 50 dollars for the park pas while we were here, so why not use it.
Some of you who have known me since we were last here will know we/I were disappointed we didn't see much wild life especially a bear , well today we did!!! We thought an accident had happened as their were cars and buses all over the road , it turned out that they had seen a bear? But rather than pull to the sides they just blocked the road, lucky for us there was a tour bus in front of us and he made them move as he wanted through, I bet his passengers weren't happy they mussed the bear???
Up close and personal as one would say, I was so glad my I pad was in the side pocket of the door!!!
Then we came upon these mountain sheep/ goat type animals again very close, like please don't scratch the car?
We went to the ice fields, oh boy it's is so much small than 18 months ago.still buses take walkers up the walk to near the top.
Now this beauty, we saw yesterday and Charlie just had to take a photo of it! It was some truck, the young man who owned it was very proud of his unit and didn't mind it being photographed, now Charlie did say he wouldn't mind driving it?? By the way it had cost the lad 1000 dollars to have it washed and polished the day before, and boy all that crome will have taken some work.
We are off tomorrow to do the two lakes here. Lake Louise we didn't do the last time as we couldn't get near it for tour buses and cars, so we are so hoping we can tomorrow, and if possible we would love to have afternoon tea at the hotel at the lake edge, if we do it will take photos.
Thank you for all your lovely comments I do appreciate them all.
You will likely all be asleep while I am writing this as it is only 5.30pm here and it turned out to be a beautiful day too, we are off out for tea soon.
