Vacation recap

Where has June gone?  Wow.

Awesome sister and I took a quick tour of Jasper and Banff National Parks a few weekends ago.  It was gorgeous and awe inspiring (as always).  I managed to take some really great pictures along the Icefields Parkway.

Gorgeous shot of the athabasca river. We ended up on the wrong side of the fence by accident.  😳

vacation 117
Near the height of the parkway the snow was still by the side of the roads and the glaciers were really deep!

vacation 119
Someone had set up an inukshuk at the Athabasca Glacier. 😀

vacation 065
Sunwapta Falls

vacation 149
Lake Louise in front of Chateau Lake Louise, one of my favorite places.

Another thing that was awesome was all the animal life that was out at this time of year!

vacation 136
Bear #1. Snuffling up everything he could eat. I don’t think he lifted his head once!

vacation 080
Mountain goat at a salt lick. Looks like he/she(?) was losing their winter coat.

vacation 103
This group of bighorn sheep were butting heads with each other.

vacation 144
Bear #2. He was a bit patchy but every bit as hungry as bear #1.

And of course there was some yarn shopping… Apart from the qiviuk I actually stayed on budget. Go me! :mrgreen:

My favorite yarn shop was the one in Canmore: Knit & Kaboodle

I’ll talk more knitting, less vacationing next post, but for now I leave you with some more pretty pictures.
