Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, November 25, 2014: Fall colors at Upper Kananaskis Lake, Alberta

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 !!

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...

Great views, and especially the pictures where the lines of color so clearly mark the changes in altitude and what is growing there...

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 GarryRF I totally agree with your comment. Pink would not have been the color I would have chosen for the Mustang, but it still was a beauty to gaze at and admire. On a side note, I had to laugh out loud when I read the license plate on the "Barracuda" which essentially reads "You are fish bait". Yes, viewing these amazing cars is great fun. I hope you enjoy my last two blogs on "Cruise Night" which I believe are to be posted on September 2 (Cars from the 1960's Part 2) and September 9...

Yes - I noticed the plates on the Mustang Ottoman. Sometimes you just look at a picture - and think - that's just not right ! Like photos of mans best friend, his dog, Dressed as a cowboy with a bandana and a Stetson hat ! Makes my toes curl up. Cringe worthy ! So I've put Sept 2nd in my diary. "The arrival of Ottomans Masterpieces ... and Hurricane Cristobal" What a fun day !

Re: Anyone Familiar with Croatia & Slovenia?

TravelGirlJenn ·
That is absolutely a valid question. And my answer is: Yes or I wouldn't be able to get to work every day. My Mustang is a manual. My father can drive a stick as well. I will likely put us both down as drivers in case he has too much pivo. ;-) I don't know what I was thinking with renting a car in Croatia and driving it to Trieste. Decided to forego going by ferry from Venice and instead by train to Trieste and will bus to Rovinj after our time there and then rent a car to take to the Lakes.

Well, maybe suggesting rather than showing. Landscape photography is a skill I haven't cultivated but, the fact remains, a remarkable bit of real estate.
