Postcard from the road - Mount Robson






It's funny how much I miss my blogging friends when I'm away from my computer. We're on a little trip and internet access is spotty or non-existent. Also, I'm having too much fun to sit down and write a post. Things will be a little quieter for the rest of this week and we have reliable internet, although no cell phone coverage, so I'll send you all a virtual postcard when I can.

Above is beautiful Mount Robson, in Mount Robson Provincial Park. It's the highest peak of the Canadian Rockies at 12,972 feet or 3954 metres. 

I haven't seen Mount Robson for many years, but have backpacked into Berg Lake twice, when we were newly married. It's a 2-day hike that follows the Valley of a Thousand Falls, then climbs steeply to the iceberg-fed lake. Lots of memories. 

Time to check the laundry in the machines here at the hotel and then find some dinner. I hope to catch up with you soon - if not this week, then next.

Lovely to know you are having such a great time - and Valley of a Thousand Falls sounds awesome, as is Mt. Robson. Isn't there something special about being within the view of majestic mountains? I always feel so small and quite insignificant as I look up at them - but no way would I ever consider taking up mountaineering - like to keep my feet on the ground! Thanks for sharing Lorrie and continue having a wonderful time - only nature can bless us with such beauty.

Hugs - Mary

P.S. If only our trips didn't involve laundry, grrrrrrr! No getting away from it is there?
