Hey Folks

Wow! Here I go and sy ‘Ill try to update this journal more often, and then I go and don’t post to it in 2 weeks. That’s not too hip. Sorry about that.

I’m looking forward to heading back over to Wrangell St. Elias National Park in a couple of days. Hopefully the weather forecast will in incorrect (which has been to happen) and the sun will shine. We’ll see.

I don’t really have any specific to write about. This photo was taken one evening in the Canadian Rockies, in Jasper National Park. I believe this mountain is part of the Colin Range, but I can’t be sure. I didn’t take notes, like I should have, and now I can’t recall. It’s an impressive slab of granite though .. way cool. The evening sun lights it up nicely in the summertime, and makes it even more impressive.

I’ll post a couple of grizzly bear photos in a few, just so I’m not outdone by Ron Niebrugge.

    I’m impressed with the accuracy of your knowledge of the natural wonders of Canada’s Rockies! However, granite is extremely rare in the Canadian Rockies as they are made up almost entirely of sedimentary and metamorphosed sedimentary. The Colin Range, like almost all of the slabby gray front ranges, is Devonian/Mississippian limestone.

    Thanks for the interesting site!
