Hi PHeymont, Travel Rob, DrFumblefinger, Thank you all for the comments. Yes, planting and watching flowers grow in the backyard is one of my favorite pass times in the summer. Here in Calgary, Canada, although the growing season is short, the flowers seemed to know how to take chances! The resulting beautiful blossom and brilliant colors make all the hard work worthwhile .

Fascinating to see that a hike in such rugged scenery can actually be an easy walk! There must be many more like that, that compare to a serious city walk and not to mountain-climbing. Good!

Very cool place to visit! With it also being so close to Calgary it can be your main focus of a vacation or just a stop on the way.

The flowers are, of course, spectacular and beautiful...but I especially loved the deep, shaded greens of the tomatoes...

GarryRF ·
Great photos Dr Y. Is this an all year tourist resort or would I freeze to death in winter ? I presume this remains sub zero all year due to its elevation. Does it contain any wildlife ? Is it receding with warmer weather ? We see pictures of areas where glacier ice is disappearing but there are areas we don't see where it's on the increase. I remember being taught about shifting ice regions in the 1950's and all this alarmist talk today seems to be just a continuation of normality.

Hi Garry, if you came in the mid of Canadian winter, the glacier ice field will look no difference to rest of the country . So, walk on the glacier ice under the hot summer sun is much more thrill! Yes, during last visit, we were told that the Columbia Ice Field glacier is receding.

I've seen so many beautiful lakes in Canada. Mostly on photos. Does this lake ever become cool or warm enough for a skinny dip ? Not that shorts keep you much warmer anyway ! I've not found one yet.

Those babies are awfully cute, and I love how mom is gently sheltering and warming them with her wings. I hope you used a telephoto lens to get these photos. Otherwise you might have had a few angry geese chasing you down the path!

Re: December 12, 2016: Percheron Horses, Alberta

GarryRF ·
Wonderful work horses with a positive future. Known for their cool temperament and strength these animals are used by police in cities where heavy traffic doesn't distress them.. For over 200 years breeders have a kept stud records and kept the breed pure. As you say they were a war horse too. A million were left in France by allied troops after WW1. And unfortunately France has a "taste" for horse meat
