We're off to Hyder, AK

Radium Hot Springs to Banff

July, 2010

Wednesday

 

 

Today was just an easy day so we could rest and enjoy Banff and all of it's greatness. Bud is having some brake issues (Servo) so he's gone in to Calgary to see if he can get it resolved. And yes, he got it resolved. Meanwhile, we checked into a very expensive hotel and are just enjoying the lounge life. However, we did sneak off to ride the gondola up to the top of the mountain to have a quick lunch. After lunch, they decided to do some quick maintenance on the ride that took about an hour and a half. That left us hung up on the top of the mountain for a whole lot longer than we would have liked. Overall, the day was very nice and relaxing.

Tomorrow, we're going to ride up the Icefields past Lake Louise and Jasper.

p.s. Richard Swim joined us tonight.
