A wonderful custom…

…that Canadian trail makers have is to set two red Adirondack chairs at scenic lookout points or alongside glistening lakes. Sometimes a message accompanies the chairs, perhaps encouraging a hiker to just sit and listen; or sometimes memorializing a lost friend or relative. Their understated acknowledgement of nature — and our place in it — is beautiful. After a wonderful couple of days in Jasper, my route now turns north and west. 5,000 miles so far, with Fairbanks still beckoning. Pictures here include Maligne Canyon, the Five Lakes and an encounter with a bighorned sheep (he won!).

  1. Spectacular photo’s, Jim. You’ve covered a lot of territory in a relatively short period.
    Hope you get a chance to play golf or fish.
