Hi Friends....

I'm back home for a few days but summer is always busy.  Leaving for a wilderness expedition soon and the forecast is rain for a week Hi Friends.....  Oh well, my hiking partner is a retired army colonel and great friend so we shall have good times around the campfire regardless.  He was my inspiration to wear the Overseas while mountaineering, as he was worn his vintage Omega Speedmaster everywhere (including sky diving) for years.  In the past we have seen bears, caribou, and mountain goats in this area so I'm hoping for some good pictures.

I'll share this picture for those of you thinking of visiting Banff...this was Mount Eiffel at nearby Lake Louise two weeks ago.  While we started in the rain, it was snowing on the summit...during the summer! Hi Friends....

Hi Friends....
Stunning picture...

Great scenery!  Thanks for the pic.  Seems like the VC Overseas is getting around as we had a nice shot a few days ago of the Overseas on the California coast near San Diego. Have a great trip. Cheers, Duncan
Do you have a photo looking down on Lake Louise?

Banff, Lake Louise & Jasper are still high on my list for vacation in 2009.    Nicholas
How about a little cabin on a lake, just over the peak from L. Louise?
