From Freezing to Roasting

Julie and I just got back from a week-and-a-half of the Canadian Rockies and Far North Rockies. Even though it was supposedly the tail end of Summer and the tip of Autumn, you wouldn't have known it from all the snow storms and rain storms we had gotten throughout the trip.

I guess it was kind of ironic that going into this trip, I was worried about lack of waterflow on many of the waterfalls fed exclusively by snowmelt. I guess those fears were unfounded for the most part (then again, maybe it's that this year there was no Summer in those parts), but the bigger concern was the snow, the grizzly bears, and the road construction delays and closures (especially in Glacier National Park).

Then, we come home and go from 0C (32F) to 100F in Los Angeles. Now why couldn't that heat wave hit us last week when the Going-to-the-Sun Road was still open?

Anyways, look for updates to the website in the next couple of weeks or so as we're in the process of processing photos and composing write-ups. Stay tuned...
