This actually belongs to day 16, near Takkakaw Falls. How many trains are there in the picture? Answer: only one, but you can see both ends of it. The track makes a loop inside the mountain. The idea is to make the slope less steep by increasing the run length. Fatal accidents were common before two of these loops were added to the rail.

The idea was to drive up to Meadows in the Sky Parkway, also in Revelstoke Park. After driving 23km out of a serpentine road of 24km, the last one km (0.6miles) was closed due to ice and snow on the road. We could have walked but there was little point as the snow covered the meadows as well. Don’t expect all roads to be open on July 11th. But the view from the mountain was good.

The next four are from my wife’s collection. Halfway up the mountain the roadsides were lined with flowers.

It was a very warm day but thanks to all the meltwater flowing into the rivers I had a very refreshing swim. I even had all the beach to myself.

An osprey admiring the view shortly before Kamloops. With my binoculars or with the LCD screen of the camera, I wasn’t sure if this was a bald eagle or an osprey. Fortunately the D800E has good cropping ability. This is cropped to about half the area of the full image.
