Banff National Park, Alberta, Lake Louise, Canada.
Columbia Ice Field in Jasper to Lake Louise in Banff
Tom started the day out by taking pictures of our beautiful view out the front window this morning. He has shots of the sun rising over the mountains and shining down over the glacier across the road. We were outside last night after we pulled in listening to the water in the distance and looking at the stars in the sky. Not many lights out here!
When Jonathan got up this morning, the first thing he did was walk to the front window to look out and check out the view. He looked behind us and saw a Chevy Tahoe and thought “Well, they're tourists, obviously. Yeah, that's an easy thing to tell when they're taking pictures of our rig from every angle they can!” So he went and got our camera . By this time they had pulled around front so he took a picture of them taking a picture of us. The guy in the Tahoe laughed when he saw Jonathan and drove forward about five feet so we thought he was going to leave but he backed up and took another picture before he left. He must have wanted one more. Maybe he wants to go RVing some day! We think he took a picture of the best rig on the road anyway. ;-) This happened in Seward a few times too. It's just gotten to be a running joke with us.
Jonathan and I headed up to the Visitor Center for a while. He didn't seem to be much in the mood for learning about the Columbia Ice Field though so we headed back a little earlier than planned. I spent time working on the web page this afternoon until Tom was done with work then we drove to Lake Louise to get settled into our campground. Jonathan found a spot in amongst the pine trees to play in. It reminded Tom and I of the pine trees in the back yard of our first house.
We had a nice dinner together once we got settled in for the night then just relaxed for the rest of the evening.
