The skies did not look promising as we ventured northward...
The Canadian Officials were friendly and quickly waved us on...
Clouds billowed and darkened as rain began spattering down
Temperatures had plummeted
We opted to stop as hail began pelting the car
This was a fun museum with interactive exhibits for all ages.
The Landau Carriage, my Step-dad is building one of these
Potions for worming horses and other horsey aids
The wonderful scent of the harnesses
Wheels ready for a carriage
Warty nose and whiskers!
Then we headed towards the Town Site of Waterton Lakes
Chili nights called for warm drinks!
The Next Day was much brighter
This place offered a most fabulous trail ride across 3000 acres of wildflower meadows
woods, creeks and cows!
This Grizzly bear track in the Mountain Meadow Lodge
did not give me any encouragement about bears lurking about
Ponies are ready
On the trail with our guide Tacee (on the buckskin)
Horses on the far hill
Venturing down a steep hill
Even the ground squirrel gets to live amongst the flowers!
The border is cut right up and over the mountain.
Old Man's Whiskers
Even the clover seemed brighter
Snow Creviced Peaks
More Fabulous wildflowers
And after almost two weeks in bear country without
sighting a bear, this little fella graced us with his presence
just before we crossed back in to the USA.
Wishing this trip hadn't ended so soon.
But I guess it is time for me to visit my own "ponies!"
