Canada Trip

I know I have been a bit lax in my postings of late but life has been a bit hectic around here to say the least but hopefully all is calming down now :) firstly I thought I would post some pics of our recent holiday to Canada where our son No1 and DIL live. We flew in to Calgary after an 8 hour flight and spent the rest of sunday and all of monday driving around this area - about 1 1/2 hours from Calgary is a place called Lake Louise - OMG how gorgeous is this lake - quite misty this day as it had been raining quite heavily the day before. The water on this lake is really turquoise it is caused by the minerals from the mountains when the snow melts :)

Prior to getting to this lake we stopped on the way because our Daughter - in - law saw someone standing at the side of the road, which in Canada usually means there is something to look at, so we turned round and went back and lo and behold, in the distance, there was a grizzly and her two cubs, this was one of the most amazing sights I have ever seen to see a bear and her cubs in their own natural habitat - it was breathtaking :)



and further on from Lake Louise was another lake 'Morraine Lake' which was even more tranquil and beautiful than Lake Louise :)

There are a lot more photos of Canada - 800ish I think and eventually they will all be uploaded to photobucket
album which is here canadajune2007
