Load up the cds so there is plenty of entertainment. Once you get into the mountains you are out of radio range, so cd's are a must have: second only to a camera!
The wildlife is astounding. Returniing home this last time, we were stopped by a huge herd of Mountain Sheep. They walked along the road, stopping traffic. Some motorists got out of their cars for a closer photo. I felt safer staying in the vehicle thank you. See the big horns, I wouldnt like to see how much damage they could do if they felt threatened! There must have been over thirty of these fellas nibbling along the road side.
Another pit stop was at Jasper National Park. Great Aunty Valerie wanted to stop there to locate some old buildings that her grandfather had built. This one is the old tourist information center, right the by train tracks. It is such a beautiful building, made of a pink stone. What an honor to be able to touch something built by an ancestor. Keith is so fortunate to have such a rich family history. A block over from this is the Jasper Aquatic Center. He also constructed the stone work on this building. What a gifted man he must have been. More to come on our travels soon.
Goodnight and Thanks for dropping by.
