Alberta road trip

Family visit road trip to Alberta. 
First night in Vancouver and a retirement party for a former colleague. Very special to see my old work mates from six years ago. 
 The next night was Vernon and a birthday cake for Jack. 

Then a stunning drive from Vernon to Calgary. 

And on a walk to Starbucks at the nearby shopping centre, we saw the quintessential prairie thing, gopher holes.
