I’m writing this on the Ferry over to Victoria just to create a quick recap (in pictures) of the Edmonton to Victoria leg of our trip.


We drove out of Edmonton two mornings ago in our touring van: Vanessa.


We said a fond farewell to our host in Edmonton, Lois Pawl, as she loaded us up with extras and treats as she had during our entire stay (three or four french toast breakfasts during the two weeks we were with her!).  We bid farewell also to Caesar the Greyhound.


After almost heading towards Calgary by mistake, we righted our course and beelined for Jasper National Park.



Ramona was overjoyed.

We continued through, stopping constantly to see the sights, including…


The Athabasca Falls

The Athabasca Glacier (that’s it in background)




And then, we finally arrived at our campsite and Ramona set up our magic tent that only takes two minutes to set up (including pegging down the two cables on the side), and two minutes to fold up… and can be done by one person.

We had an amazing campsite.


I’ll post more later.  I don’t have  access to the other photos right now.
