Let's jump right into the photo album.
From our hotel room in Banff. If you have never been to the Rockies, this is what you've been missing.
Again, around Banff. I think I took this one from the car window (open).
More mountains. I never get tired of scenery like this.
I think I wrote that we had to make a detour because of a rock slide outside the city of Golden. It was a 2-hour detour through the town of Radium (where there's a hotspring). Leaving Radium, we had to go through this little pass. The picture was taken on our return trip, on which we had to make the same detour.
There are more pictures, but generally, it's more of the same. Then, this week, there was the rainbow. It's been a little unsettled around here, weather-wise. We've been getting a fair bit of rain, some hot weather and some near-freezing nights. All in all, the weather has contributed to the fast melting of the snow in the mountains. There's been some minor flooding in our area (well, the other side of the lake, mostly). Nothing too serious.
Anyway, with the storms and the sudden clearing, we've been treated to this....
I've never seen a rainbow as close as this one was. Or one that was, at the same time, double. Pretty awesome! (We were almost tempted to search for the pot of gold.)
