Day 24 – Grande Prairie, AB to Banff,AB

Today was another good, but long day of driving. Partly cloudy & windy. We saw many animals today. 14 deer, a moose, a black bear, 2 elks, 3 bighorn sheep, a coyote and 12 Dall sheep. We saw the Dall  sheep crossing the road so we were very close. This is rare. Usually you see Dall sheep only very high up on the mountains and they look like tiny white specks. Driving from Jasper to Banff we drove right down the top of the Rocky Mountains. The views were awesome. It will be tough choosing which scenes to put into the blog. We are in Banff on a Saturday and on the Canada Day weekend so it is crawling with tourists in addition to Paul & me. Tomorrow we head out for Glacier National Park and the good ol’ USA.

    Yeah, isn’t it annoying when other tourists get in the way? I prefer the lesser known routes.

    More awsome brother pics! And the waterfalls! Driving down the top of the Rockies – wow. Hey, how does it feel to have been on vacation for three and a half weeks? Man, I plan to do that some day! Love you two,
