I am now in Vernon, British Columbia. It was a long ride, what should have taken five years, um I mean hours, took about nine hours. So I am nineteen hours of travel into my trip. Tomorrow we make it to Vancouver Yay!
Today we stopped at a Safeway in Canmore, which is beautifully situated in the middle of the mountains. No matter what direction I looked I saw mountains. As a kid from the broil forest, borial stupid autocorrect, it was an impressive site.
After another hour or two we ended up at a picnic site just outside Lake Louise. I had a half lumberjack that I had gotten in the Safeway. Yummmm.
Going through the mountains was cool. Lots of trees like home, but unlike home there was lots of elevation changes. My ears were popping more than an Orvile Redenbacher factory. Fun!
And then there was Lake Mara. This lake is like ten kilometres long, and crazy clean. There was lots of houseboats on the lake as well.
We finally made it to Vernon and had supper at an Aisian food place, no where near as good as Aisian Le, but it was passable. Now Dad is watching Madagascar 2 and I am writing this. I love the line, “This place is a dump, you sure we aren’t in New Jersey”
I guess this ends day two, we’ll see how long I keep this up, Evonne I am looking at you and shrugging my shoulders.
ROCK ON Internet ROCK ON!
