We went on a Boat trip on Maligne Lake to Spirit island - it was a superb trip and the scenery fantastic - the island was named by the Native Indians
Now this Moose is superb - they are very private animals and stay away from folks totally, the guide on the boat trip said this was the first one she had seen this year and our tour guide has not seen a moose for about five years - so we felt very privileged to see the two of them.
Long Horned sheep - they are really parochiel and feel the roads are theirs - and they saunter along in no hurry at all!!
When we got to Jasper we went white water rafting it was the most spectacular afternoon - we all got totally soaked and the guy organising us - well rowing - was determined to get us as wet as possible and headed for the most turbulent stretches of water.
Then from Jasper to the Rocky Mountaineer - it was everything I had dreamed off, spectacular scenerey. we were lucky it was not fully booked and we had a whole carriage to six of us so - we could move about freely and enjoy the scenery.
When we got to Whistler - we were staying in the Olympic Village which was very modern and lovely - the hotel room was more like an apartment and was great. Anyway we took ourselves off on an off roading excursion into the surrounding countryside - great scenery and places you just could not imagine. These are the falls with No name - great title!
From Whistler we headed towards Vancouver via Capilano - this is a beautiful canyon with a suspension bridge that swung all over the place. And the modern skywalk which was right out over the canyon - it was fantastic.
