I have attached some pictures of some places that I think are just great as you are traveling west through the Rocky Mountains. Of course there are a lot of other places that are just as beautiful throughout this great country of ours, but I am kinda partial to the mountains. :)
Rogers ass by the way is aproxamatly 4300 feet. Three Valley gap is a nice rest stop on the way West or east. And Arrowhead Lake is south of Revelstoke and the are some wonderful hot springs to visit.
I hope you enjoy the pics.

I wish we had your mountains over here in the bush.

Thats great, I was taveling thru the mountains and happened to stop for a break at Kicking Horse Pass and when I got out of the vehicle all I saw were little inukshukss placed all over the parking lot and benches. Sorry no pictures of it, forgot my camera. Maybe someone from here has been there and seen it too?

One of the first mountains of the Rockies in Eastern BC, just north of Cranbrook.

My mom and grandma live in the Arctic circle... if you wear the right gear it's an amazing place to visit. I love visiting her and the rest of my family there, although I am partial to Virginia climate now so I wouldn't be able to live there. I took the first 3 pictures, my mom took the last 2 and sent them to me.

lecoq 10-12-2010 10:15 AM

Nice pics! Where does your mom live...looks cold LOL

She and my grandma currently live in Norman Wells, right on the MacKenzie River. My grandma's family are in Aklavik wich is even further North. It's beautiful but very cold in the winter :)

Here are some shots from a couple of places called Big Horn outlook and Bluerock Creek S.W. of Calgary

RiponredTJ 10-12-2010 04:18 PM

Wow. I just googled Aklavik. You can't get much further north than that without falling into the Beaufort Sea!

I'm guessing that's considered part of the MacKenzie River delta right? The amount of water I'm seeing there is pretty extreme. How are the mosquitos up there when everything thaws out?

Ever since reading Farley Mowatt's tales of the Canadian north many years ago I've wanted to visit that area of our country.

Post more pics if you have them.

Nice.
That tree would be perfect material for a chain saw sculpture :D
But it would be a pity to cut it down.
Do people canoe/kayak/raft Bluerock Creek.
It looks like a great place for whitewater fun.

That's funny. I googled Norman Wells and was looking
at it in satellite view on google maps. I've got to check
out Aklavik next.



***Alright I just did and you're not kidding about all
the water!

I agree, more pics!

paddyboy2u 10-12-2010 05:00 PM

Bluerock is a little shallow for that, but there is a lot of place that are within a hour or so that you can ride the white water.

That tree is real cool, I just happened to spot it while I was driving, had to pull over and get a closer look.

RiponredTJ 10-12-2010 07:09 PM

That tree is great!
Nice burls.

Yes, part of the MacKenzie River delta :) And yes, the mosquitos are pretty awful when everything thaws out. I usually take the trip when it's all still frozen and bugs aren't too bad though. With the right gear, the cold is not a problem. I have a lot of pictures... I'll go through them and post more tomorrow ... been a long day at work and I need to sleep right now :).

Thanks Rip... I was making tea for my scotch.

Did you skip the one of the jumping salmon?

RiponredTJ 10-12-2010 08:36 PM

Of course not.
They were all great pictures.
But tea for scotch?
What's that all about?

80fillies 10-12-2010 08:48 PM

tea with scotch. or rum. it's a great maritime tradition...

or maybe it's just my tradition :)
