Jasper, Canada

We drove from Vancouver to Kamloops, through the mountains with their snow covered peaks, to Kamloops,  where we stayed at a lovely bed and breakfast right on the river and our friendly hosts, Bridget & Dean cooked an amazing breakfast for us and gave David a pen with a light on it that he still uses! They also told us a story about how eagles come to fish there and how they sometimes fly down and take off with the odd domestic pet - I had nightmares about Oly and Ringo being swooped away by a big eagle after that (thanks Bridget and Dean!).

Vancouver, Canada

Lake Louise, Canada

Lake Louise is an emerald lake set against the backdrop of Victoria Glaciear.  It is a few hours drive from Jasper, and the drive is just spectacular, one of the world's great mountain drives.  The Lake itself is stunning, even though it was still frozen over when we were there in May.  The only problem with Lake Louise is that it kept reminding me of a saying that my dad used to say "Sharon Louise has fat knees" (my middle name is Louise).  Other than that I really enjoyed our time there.
