Vacation 2010

On June 20th my friend Connie and I left for our vacation to Calgary, Banff, Jasper and Edmonton.

We drove the trans canada highway and were hoping the the flooding from the day before had receded and the highway would be open at the Alberta/Saskatchewan border.  Unfortunately, that didn’t happen as our 14 hour drive to Calgary ended up taking 17 hours.  Of course we did have a couple (or 3 or 4) stops at Tim Hortens along the way.  Connie drinks coffee all day long, but one of the stops also included lunch.

We spent the first 2 nights at a fine establishment in Calgary – my sister Sharon and her husband John look after many family and friend travelers who pass by and they extended their usual hospitality to Connie and I.

The weather was great for most of the days, so we were out and about as much as possible, while still leaving time for facebook and Africam.

Colby and Sydney are both Heather’s children.

We left Calgary on Monday morning and headed for Banff, where we had a room reservation at the Y Hotel.   Apparently this building used to be the old hospital there.

Between the breathtaking scenery of the mountains and the wildlife we saw, I have way too many pictures to post here.  I will put a few though and then give you the link to the rest of the pictures on my facebook page.
