On the road

We are 700 km east of Vancouver on the Trans Canada Highway at Golden. From Wikipedia: "Golden is nestled in the Rocky Mountain Trench, built around the confluence of the Columbia and Kicking Horse rivers, surrounded by three different mountain ranges and five National Parks: Yoho National ParkBanff National ParkJasper National ParkGlacier National Park, and Kootenay National Park.
This photo is from the window of our room at the Prestige Inn. We had a reasonable dinner with almost acceptable wine and now J. is watching the Canucks lose their fourth game of seven in the first round of the NHL play-offs on the TV while I update this blog.
