WOW!
Your delight at all you've seen in the past couple of days sings off the page. It's wonderful your trip is delivering such a variety of climate, experiences, terrains and wildlife - all in 2 months! SNOW when you were baking in 30 degrees 2 days ago - who would have thought it!. Your photos of the grizzly and wolves are excellent. I hope you thoroughly enjoy your next few days in the area. xx .

Calgary
Hi Both, I was very interested to read about Calgary and see your photos. I always picture it as a snow-covered, mountain resort. Clearly 'not so'! Also, I can't get my head around 30 degree temps in the daytime falling away at night with forecast of snow in a couple of days. It's bizarre.. As Barbara mentioned the 75th Anniversary of D-Day was moving and I see we all thought of our Dads and where they were in June 1944. Mine would have been 24 based in Burma. I was very interested to read that Viv's Dad's birthday was 6 June and he went to Normandy on 12 June. I remember from chatting with Barbara that her Dad was based in Italy. Thank God our Dads came through it all but what dreadful events they saw. On a very different note I saw a wonderful exhibition of paintings by the Spanish artist, Sorolla, at the National Gallery yesterday. Beautiful images of children playing on beaches dappled in bright mediterranean sunshine. They were a joy.!

Calgary and Canmore
Hi Viv and John Love the blog especially the ohitoes of Calgary and Canmore. They both look very interesting. What an amazing country Canada is. Thanks for taking us there with you love Barb and Dave. xx p.s. the 75 anniversary of D day was quite something and you must be very proud of your Dad. I think those who survived the beeches were lucky.

Hi Both, your blogs and photos have been an education. I didn’t realise there was such a strong inheritance from red indian ancestry. I agree, the names of towns, lakes etc are wonderful. I knew a fair bit about Toronto and Vancouver but not much about the area inbetween. Red coated Mounties, huskies, snow and stories of Lake Louisa and Whistler from skiing friends. You are filling in that gap and now I have cowboys! I loved the pic and story about the petrol station. Such a simple and endearing image in this high tech, fast paced world we are used to. It’s great you have another month to explore. Xx

updates
Really enjoying reading your trip reports. Can't believe your husband got out the car and walked towards the bear nor that the bear didn't break the tree, the tree must have been stronger than it looked or the bear was lighter than I expected. Looking forward to reading the next episodes...safe travels

Trains and bears
A 30 minute wait for the freight train to move through the level crossing underlines the size and scale of the prairies. Our 2 or 3 carriage branch line trains pass through level crossings in about 2 mins! I’m pleased you had a red letter day and saw your ‘black bear’. Not sure i’d want such a close encounter. The photos are very good - he looks a sturdy, purposeful fellow. Take care xx
