(Thursday night) Before knocking ourselves out for the night, BS bugged Alynn whether we should move camp indoors or stay put, because the lightning was having its dance show in a distance, over the mountains. Around 3:15 am, BS awoke to find her sleeping bag a bit damp and noticed the cloudy sky looming above us, through the tent roof screen. Without taking further risks, she moved into SUV and snoozed off. About 45 mins later, Alynn was awakened by the dancing drops of rain on her face, scurried to put her somewhat damp sleeping bag in the SUV, and back out to take down the tent. What a record and it should a Guinness record for fastest time to take the tent down in the soon fast-pouring rain! Oh, what a show!
Ever care to ride on a glacier? Have your chance at the Columbia Icefield and ride the snocoach! It was a sweet little tour, on a cloudy day, and you can see various formations created by the glaciers or should we say, the melting glacier?
Oh, amazing! Of all places, one would never thought to bump into an old college friend in a National Park, much less another country! It was a nice surprise to see Raj and he was the one who picked Alynn out of the crowd! We were parked in the lot, eating out lunch and he pointed a finger at Alynn. Alynn thought he wanted the parking space and gestured to him that we were not leaving. Then, he signed! Oy!
