Hi Rob - Have you read the new Frommers England yet? I hope its a vast improvement over the Wileys version. Is the new range of Travel Guides moving away from Arthur Frommers "Budget" format?

Travel Rob ·
PortMoresby and Vivie- Thanks for the kind words. I am really excited that these books are out and really good. Garry, I haven't read Frommers England yet .I read the new France and Spain Guides and I liked them so I'm hopeful about England. Frommers is incuding different price ranges now and from what I've seen ,it's a lot more budget choices too

Yes, HistoryDigger. A well traveled person like you should see fall in the Rockies sometime. It's really a very beautiful experience.

Beautiful and unspoilt - is this part of Canada as big as it looks? Do the city folks come here to get back to nature ? Looks like camping heaven - but does it have any wildlife that likes human blood? Could it be too good to be true ? Great pix - worthy of a Gumbo Calendar Dr.Y !!

DrFumblefinger ·
Hi GarryRF, Yes, this part of the world includes vaste stretches of wilderness. Lots and lots of unspoiled mountains, valleys, forests, rivers and lakes. It is only an hour's drive from west Calgary, so lots of those of us who live here spend our weekends in the Rockies. Much like those in Denver. Camping is wonderful in the summertime, as the weather is mild and the days very long. It's also great to hike here at that time. Camping in the winter is only for the brave of heart. You need to...

My Wife - she who must be obeyed - loves a single Kayak and the open sea. So I presume this would be on a lake. Much safer I think. Sounds like you have the perfect location for a wilderness family like ours ! When we camp in summer you'd mistake some of the tents for aircraft hangers. But the kids and babies come too. Canoes and Fishing rods. Wet suits and waders. We go to Shell Island in Wales - but only when the tides out. Need to plan your journey ahead. They only have Grizzly Sheep.

The road was clearly marked CLOSED If it was my own act of stupidity then I would keep it a secret. Why some folks with 4x4 cars think they can beat the laws of physics I don't know. But thanks for the concern. No one was hurt I believe.

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 .

Drove through the Crowsnest Pass this past weekend and the fall colors were starting to take shape. Birch and aspen were a beautiful golden, and the tamaracks also starting their fall transition. A clearing storm added some contrast to the beautiful scenery. One of my favorite drives anywhere!
