The Columbia Icefield

If you’re skating on thin ice, you might as well dance.

Watch your step. It’s slippery.
Well … it’s ice!

Ice. On ice.

But we came prepared.
Ray bought some of these.

Mini crampons.

Just so …

Also …
Our raingear from Niagara Falls.
Keep your powder dry.
I’ve found that wet cameras often don’t shoot well. 

There’s some people up here.

Lots of people.

And misty mountains.

Gateway to the Heavens.

When nobody was looking Rose claimed everything in the name of Canada. 

Glorious and Free.

    We two also have mini crampons. What a great invention! I feel a lot less threatened by winter.

      I never knew about them till Ray pulled them out. They were very useful though. Other folks were slipping around and we were OK.
