Monday teaser!

I just got back from a 15.5 hour tour (doesn't quite flow like three-hour tour, but work with me.)!

My friends and I drove up to Jasper in the Canadian Rockies and had a wonderful day in spite of no air conditioning in the truck and temps in the mid to high 20's (btwn 75- 80 F). We stopped and took several photos and they tried to give me a heart attack, by forcing me (yes, they twisted my rubber arm) to climb down then back up a gorge. I hope the photos will be worth it.

See, that's the teaser part....I have several photos and some video, but they are all still on the camera and I am beat. I will not even download them tonight, let alone check the quality and string together the video. That should be done by Wednesday though, so check back then. In the meantime, I will be posting Tuesday for the WWC the words are "A" and "your favourite song" - yeah, like I have one!

The only disappointing thing about the trip is that the wardens seem to have taken all of the Elk that live in Jasper and moved them elsewhere - not a one to be seen in town and that is unusual. More on that later though.

Have a good day all.

I am happily & anxiously awaiting your photos!
If we can't have elk, do we get bear instead?
Actually, I will be thrilled just to see your pictures of the Canadian Rockies. [insert happy sigh]

They moved all those damned elk to our haystack this winter...... grrrr.

Looking forward to your pictures and video!

Reb, I'm looking forward to your Jasper adventures. Maybe the elk were having a meeting in preparation for the summer tourist season.

Kcinnova, I was thinking how happy you would be to see the photos as I was taking them.

David thanks. It was lots of fun.

Sis, that could well be ;)

Leah, somehow I don't think so.

Reb, what memories you stir up by visiting Jasper in one day. I've done Jasper and Banff in separate one day trips. But the tiredness after is worth it.

I look forward to your photos on Wedneday with eager anticipation!

No elk in Jasper townsite? Perhaps they were getting a little too 'human friendly' and had to be forcibly removed out into the wilderness like they do with the bears.

Barbara, I think that is why they were moved, or just the tourists were too stupid to be near them.
