Rocky Trails & Mountie Tales ’10: Bob’s Video

Just when I thought I was done with the travel blog ;-)…one of the other people on our tour, Bob T., from New Hampshire (and his lovely with Bonnie) made an awesome photo montage of the trip, along with some shots of the other places in Canada that they visited on their own, after the tour was over. I asked him permission to post it onto my blog, Read more…

Rocky Trails & Mountie Tales ’10: Day 8: Going Home & Reflection

Going Home day.

Crap.

There really isn’t much reason to go through a narrative of our trip home. Luggage pickup was at 8am and the breakfast buffet (we invited Kari and Chris to eat with us) and the ride to Calgary airport Read more…

Rocky Trails & Mountie Tales ’10: Day 4: Onward to Canada, Eh!

Moving Day! Time to travel from Glacier Park, Montana to Banff, Canada. Our alarm woke us up at 6:00am (to be fair, all this waking up early has not been as painful as one would expect, because Read more…

Rocky Trails & Mountie Tales ’10: Day 3: White Water Rafting & Red Bus Tour

We woke up at 7am for an 8:30am meeting time to get on the bus. We were behind “Kathy and Bill from outside Philly” on line for breakfast so we decided to eat as a foursome (Kari and Chris from San Diego were a few people behind us but didn’t want to jump the line to make us a table of six). We were a little smarter for breakfast and didn’t load up – Joe got pancakes and Irish oatmeal, while I had Irish oatmeal and a banana.

We loaded onto the bus at 8:30am and were on our way. After 30 minutes or so, Read more…

Rocky Trails & Mountie Tales ’10: Day 2: Many Glacier Lake & Storytelling

Note: The blogging software I had purchased for my iPad turned out to be less than ideal (hanging, crashes, etc.) so I  am re-posting this entry, along with several new and improved pictures that I can now include because I also have the (better) photo editing software that’s on my laptop…

The alarm was set for 6:30am but even after needing to make up for only 5 hours of sleep (tops!) the night before, I was still awake at 6:15am (which would be 8:15am – 15 minutes later than when I usually wake up). Taking a shower was quite an experience – Read more…

This was our third Adventures by Disney tour – the first one, Southwest Splendor (2007) was awesome. The second one, Backstage Magic, which gave us backstage views of Hollywood and Disneyland (2008) was OK, and now we were on our way to Glacier National Park in Montana, followed by the Canadian Rockies. Fingers crossed that it doesn’t suck!

We woke up at an ungodly 4:30am, for a 5:30am pickup to the airport. With last-minute Read more…
