Our GCTT Pt 5 - The Rockies

 Our first glimpse of Canada's majestic Rocky Mountains... which stretch more than 3,000 miles (4,830 km) from the very north of British Columbia all the way south to New Mexico.

 Even in mid-June there is still plenty of snow on the peaks!

 In Jasper we met a bear...

 So many trees in the valleys... so many wonderful shades of green!

Thousands of these lovely glass transformers sit atop the old wooden poles all along the tracks.
I wish I could have grabbed one or two for souvenirs!

The Pyramid Falls
can only be seen from the train!

A rare glimpse of blue sky!
