Wow! Has it been over a week since the last update?
How time flies when the days are short, and the plans are starting to formulate for the next expedition. With luck, we should be on the road south by the start of February! Can't wait!
In the meantime, there has been lots going on at work. Well, at least lots of drivers that can't seem to grasp the concept of 'keeping it between the ditches' and 'keeping the shiny side up'!
Starting off the photo lineup is a shot of 'Morants Curve', taken through the windsheild. It is a famous spot for photographing trains just east of Lake Louise on the 1A highway.
Next a shot of the front of my truck, while I was starting it up after the recent snowfalls.
Then, scenic shot looking down the tracks near Lake Louise, while watching out for the train coming!
Today was a great day for wolf sightings! I spotted this pack of at least 7 wolves in Yoho National Park, and got to take quite a few pictures, but was disappointed with the quality - even at 10.1 megapixels. I think there are six wolves in this photo.
I turned down a closed access road for a better look, and found this one black wolf, very close up, and very unconcerned about my intrusion into his day. This 'may' have been one of the original group of 7, or it might be an eighth wolf!
The next three pics are of a truck that somehow failed to stay on the straight road, even though it was three lanes wide at that spot. Hmmm? Fortunately, no one was hurt in any of the three wrecks.
This guy decided that driving on the road was not challenging enough, so he decided on a route between the highway - and the river! He did a good job of keeping it upright under these admittedly challenging conditions. He kept the shiny side up, but failed miserably in keeping it between the ditches.
And just this afternoon, this guy followed the rule about keeping it between the ditches, but must not have been listening when I mentioned keeping the shiny side UP!.
And for the Harley fans - another video of, well, Harley getting his hair done.
