Take along a video camera...

I had a blast! Jasper was simply rejuvenating. Trish & Maddy are everything they present themselves to be and much more. The only downfall was that the weekend went by too fast!

I will definately have to post about my constructive reality person now and get some pictures up.

Do share what treasures you find at the West Ed Mall. I have a love hate relationship with that place. I hate people but I love to shop! And I agree with Daverbee, take along a video camera and make sure you take pictures to share!

The Adventures in Jasper

Here are a couple of the beautiful views we had from our room on Friday night:





While Trish, Mad & I were off to our journey to the hot springs the wildlife of Jasper were compelled to come out and see the sexy Aussie that had come to town. For some reason they usually had the munchies whenever they came out though.

The first was Fabio the Elk:




This is one of Fabio the Elk and his sidekick Sparrow:


This last one of Fabio and his stance cracks me up:

These next two pictures are of the ever so cute black bear that was munching away about 10 feet from us. . . unfortunately they are a bit blurry as I had one hand on the camera and the other ready to push the auto window up button:

Zaf's Journey home from Jasper

On my way home this scroungy mountain goat was hanging out on the side of the road. I wonder if it knows the scroungy goat Maddy had seen the day before. I really like this guy's eyes though:

This next is of a tree that was uprooted by a small, VERY clear, pond. Everytime we drove past it I was in awe and had to get some pictures of it on the way out of town:










Here are some pictures of the pond the tree was with:

Thanks for posting, Zaf! Beautiful pics!
Now, where are the pictures of the three of you terrorizing the Mounties?

Hmmm. I think after the above photos, the pier in Long Beach may be a bit of a disappointment!

Pretty excited about all that art deco in one spot.

Way to go Zaf on the pics! Nostalgic already.

We did the West Ed mall today and like the good mothers we both are, bought only for our children and dogs then got out quick.

Trish has been the ideal host and chauffeur extraordinaire. She deals with jetlagged, monosyllabic australians as if she does it every day.

I'm to Vancouver tomorrow, I may or may not be able to stop in prior to the QM depending on the proximity of internet cafes to my hotel.

Wow! Fabulous pictures Zaf! And so fast. I haven't even managed to open my camera bag yet...

I hoped to make the notorious BBQ shrimp tonight, but exhaustion = pizza.

Sounds like Trish has been a wonderful host.
Does she get a five star rating, snake?

Heh. Snake gets a five star rating for not saying a word when the ratlet stole her bottled water out of the fridge!

Trisherina gets a five star rating all round. She's been the perfect host - she even had enough Xanax to share. I'll never live up to her standard if/when the Rat Family make it to visit me and Sid.

Next monkey meet is at Trish's house!

(We had to let the Mounties out at the park gates. Some strange canadian regulation re minimum distance between a Mountie and an australian).
