More Beautiful Mountain Views

The day started out on the boring side. We needed to do some shopping, get breakfast, and buy gasoline. A stop at Tim Horton's allowed us to get coffee and munchies, as well as some quality Internet time. We planned our day, made reservations for that night, then proceeded south. After a few more gas stops we were at our destination. At first the road was a bit too agricultural to be of much interest. We did stop at the Historic Mile 108 Roadhouse for lunch, and photos. Soon the view improved. Running down a great river valley that later became a steep canyon, proved very interesting and photogenic. The Canadian Pacific has tracks on both sides of the river, so train views were numerous. Parts of the canyon reminded me of parts of the New Mexico mountains, rugged but dry with sparse timber. As we approached our destination, the canyon widened in to a valley with many farms No animals worthy of mention today. Today's photo is a CP train of ore cars heading west through several tunnels and slide protectors.
