Columbia Icefields

The Columbia Icefields, Alberta, Canada, between Banff and Jasper. It covers 125 square miles and up over 1000′ deep in places. It gets up to 280″ of snow each year. When we arrived at Honeymoon Lake in the Columbia Icefields just south of Jasper, Alberta, Canada, it looked like a lovely lake. But at sunset it was transformed to the most remarkable mirror image. Across the lake was a bear I spotted with binoculars.

Pioneer Museum in the Canadian Rockies

While camping in the Canadian Rockies we stopped by a pioneer museum and came across these two signs from 1872 and 1915 regarding the behavior of teachers. Whoa! times have certainly changed.
