A long and noisy night with only the sound of the train whistles every half hour echoing around the mountains making a difference.
Woke up to find that the helecopter flight for today was cancelled. The visibility is simply too bad with the smoke from the forest fires further north.
Spent a morning exploring and ended up at the railway station waiting for a train to come through.
Two turned up at the same time, both over a mile long. This afternoon, went to sulphur mountain and took the cable car up.
Met a lovely couple from northern ireland. Both Pam and this lady were very scared indeed.
At the top, the weather cleared and we could see the rockies in all their splender. Loads of Chipmunks up there.
Forgot to say that real mounties are on duty here dressed in their cerimonial uniforms.
It started to get very windy so we made our way down. The cable car was rocked violently from side to side but we got down safely. Soon afterwards it
stopped completely but was soon going again.
Tonight we are off to see 'oh Canada eh?' We saw this 2 years ago on the east coast and had a great time then. Hopefully this will be as good.
