I'm a self-absorbed Bengali-Torontonian;
Fish comes to me raw, wrappend in seaweed, not cooked in curry;
I love watching thunderstorms and rain;
Sad endings make more sense to me than happy ones;
I hate empty walls.

    Thanks! You are my visitor number,

    Wednesday

    Last post about the trip (I swear)


    Finally managed to load the pictures.
    Here we go.......

    Journey began at 10:30am ......with lots of help from this map which was great, meaning we didn't have to stop and ask hitchikers for directions.




    Western canada is also had less confusing signs than Ontario.




    We tried to race through as much as BC as possible in one day and still stopped to take in the amazing waterfalls....here's one- called 'Crazy creek' beacause you can cross it on this hanging bridge thing ... death wish anyone?


    A brisk walk through the enchanted forest was more of our thing. Can you believe everything was constructed by two people (husband and wife) with their bare hands? Its was incredible! I love this stuff. I kept expecting young Bambi to turn up. He did; even if he was made of clay. Pictures didn't come out great beacuse of lighting, so check out their website if you'd like to see more. Suniya and I in front of the gingerbread house of Hansel and Gretel.

    This one is of 'The Women who lived in a Shoe'



    Here is one of the many partially frozen waterfalls



    Our first pit stop- Revelstroke. Sadiya and I with our car.


    pit stop: revelstroke


    Then we drove across the BC border into the Banff National park, Alberta while passing a lot of mountains like this

    Planning our activities at an Elvis inspired diner in Banff. How you can ruin plain omelet I'll never know but they managed to do it.

    Spent the night at Canmore and woke up to this view outside the window

    Driving north into Jasper National Park we ran into the first Galacier- called Crow's Glacier. Not sure why but did say one crow and two magpies fighting nearby

    Off we went cruising up and down the rockies, stopping occasionally to hold our collective breath and catch the view

    Stopped at the beginning of the Athabasca river(one we'll eventually be rafting in> at the Columbia Icefield . brrrrr cold.

    Going under and over the rapids while white water rafting in the Mile-stretch of the Athabasca river. I'm the one in the front with her mouth open in shock.

    Interesting mountain formations seen on the way to Lake Louise

    strange mountians

    Series of waterfalls that came right down to the roads and run underneath.

    Whale watching in Victoria. Caught this one after clicking away for half an hour. They are so fast.

    Totems at Stanley park, each breathing a family crest, a story, a belief. Cool.
