We had a nice day until the past hour. It's clouded over again and we've had some light rain again. The forecast for the rest of the week is warmer and at least partly sunny. It's about time, I'm starting to grow moss
Many like myself are taking our Alaskan tour via the eyes of you all and your cameras. Believe me, the enjoyment of the pics is being graciously etched in the eyeballs of many of us, that unfortunitely can't be with you. Sincerely hope the entire trip comes off without a hitch. Thanks Again./
This morning we moved the motor home up to Lake Louise, then took a drive through YoHo NP and into Glacier NP. We went as far as Rogers Summit, the center of the park. Here are some photos we took along the way. The Spiral Tunnels are two loops through the mountain for the railroad, the first photo shows the two end of one of the loops.
Natural Bridge is small compared to those in Utah's Natural Bridges NP, but the water runs fast and is quite impressive. The first photo is the rapids above the bridge and the second is the actual bridge.
The next two photos are some mountains in Glacier NP, note the huge snow pack still on the mountain. I don't know if it ever all melts.
The snow shed is one of 5 that we drove through in Glacier NP. They are in avalanche areas and keep the road open when the snow comes rushing down. There are a lot of those on the railroad as well.
The last photo is one of the impressive mountains in YoHo NP, part of the Canadian Rockies.

Yes it is in B.C. west of Lake Louise about a 100 miles (not km). ?This was definitely a WOW ride in both parks. ?I gave up the gondola ride in Banff so we could do this drive. ?Will do the tramway ride in Jasper.

Jasper tram is very interesting. Its was especially interesting for us. We were the very last in the evening to go down and there was a long delay. Then one of the operators explained, as no one was coming up they had to fill a special car at bottom with 300 pounds of water to provide offsetting ballast. It took a while for a guy with a graden type hose to fill that tank!
