The drive has been an easy one as both my husband and I love to explore the small roads. We take the Interstates only when there is no other way from point A to point B. This makes the trip eventful in some cases as many of the areas are open ranges. It is always challenging to round a curve to cattle, deer, elk or wild horses.
I am amazed at how late spring has come to some of the areas where we have visited. The flowers have been beautiful - spring flowers that bloomed long ago at home. The peonies have filled the night air with the most heavenly scents. I am in awe of the breathtaking flower bowls that we have seen throughout Canada, including these in Calgary.
This is a picture of the gorgeous Banff Fairmont Hotel. They call it the castle.
The Canadian Rockies were covered with snow and the temps in the area were in the 30s. I can't remember what that equates to in C. It is something like multiplying 1.8 and adding 32 for F.
Glacier National Park in Montana was also sporting lots of snow at this time of the year.
All in all it has been a terrific vacation and I look forward to arriving in Iowa tomorrow and seeing all of my relatives again.
