The Selkirks - Rogers Pass July 20, 2009

Road trip to the Selkirks & Rogers Pass was great day. Federal parks were aplenty and we had no problem finding a picnic site along the way. Once again, it was a photographers paradise, so many beautiful mountains and critters to keep the eye sharp!

The Last Spike of the Canadian Pacific Railway... November 7, 1885

Can you see the Cross?

The work it took to build these railways

Stellar's Jay... had a cheezie thanks to a patron of the park!

This crazy Raven was doing a little dance for me. The size of these birds is incredible!

Gophers everywhere! My first to see. They make this irritating sound when danger is close to warn their little buddies. Glad I don't live close to them!!

Cornus canadensis - Bunchberry Dogwood.
They are just growing along the roadside. A real treat to see.
