  Saying goodbye to our campsite in Glacier NP (Illecillewaet campground)…

Stopping at Rogers Pass in the heart of Glacier…

There use to be railroad tracks across these towers!!

…and through these trees!

Some mushroom shots…

Some bugs procreating…?

Exploring Canada’s national parks has been a real treat, and we really hope to be able to come back some day to see more of the same parks, and to explore new ones!

Walking Around Campus

Was in a weird mood today, and decided to walk home.  Doing so nicely lends to stopping to take in the sights (sites?) and sounds of campus.
