Today, as we were driving down the TransCanada Highway, a place I've been many times, David announced we were going, "down there" and pointed at the side of the road. I said, "There's no road down there. There's just water and trees." As we drove on, I kept looking for a road, but no, it was just more water and trees. I thought he was joking. Nope. There was a road "down there," just a wee bit off the TransCanada and almost completely obsured from view. Along the road are the Vermillion Lakes. These lakes are home to a variety of wildlife including, fish, moose, deer, and birds -- we saw ducks, some cranes and a bald eagle. And, of course, there's the mosquitos. The lakes are also provide a stunning viewpoint for Mt. Rundle, especially as the sun starts to set and lights up the mountain as it reflects in the water.
