The Turquoise Day
Up early to get to a hike at Moraine Lake. But we were interrupted on our effort to get their early enough for a parking space by a grizzly bear, our first on this trip and second ever. Thus we were a bit late but got one of the last parking places at 8:00. What a magnificent lake, incredible colors of turquoise and blue and green. All surrounded by snow and glacier capped mountains, seven peaks in all, I think. The trail goes only on one side of the lake so it is an out and back. Great scenery and great weather. Then we tried to do another hike but zero parking. None. So we went to Lake Louise, the town, and ate at Bill Peydo’s Cafe. Nice place with decent food not too badly priced. Then back toward Banff on 1A we stopped at Johnston Canyon for a walk to two water falls along a 2.5 mile trail. Again rushing, turquoise glacial waters filled the canyon. We saw both the lower and upper falls.
Cadillac’s Most Correct Viewpoint
I am in disbelief! My surprise is a sentence not a gift. The Guides gave me an intern. Sounds decent of them, right? Not at all. It is a bison, with wimpy horns. It is inarticulate and only communicates with grunts, I mean, how embarrassing is that and it is called Brrricesun de Bison. I will never call him that! What am I supposed to do with this? Where will it sleep? It never sipped a latte, never toured the Louvre, never swam with the dolphins, never ran with the bulls and does not know anything about Moose Rights. Sophistication is not its strong suit. The guides said it is an ESA. I will have to look that up. What I need is someone who can make copies and coffee, someone with an MBA not an ESA. I need to research the ESA degree right away because the main problem is that BdB already adores me. Surprise!!!
