Our vacation to B.C with a link to many pictures

Since there is no vacation forum, I thought I'd be safe to post this here

We went on a vacation to Fairmont B.C. We stayed at a 5 star resort, for free, because friends of ours own a time share there. All we had to do was sit through the presentation, and fend off a flury of pushy sales people wanting to sell us a time share (2 hours).

Sheila and I aren't big fans of skiing, it was too early for golf, but we don't do that either. So we drove around backroads looking for wildlife and cool places, and checked out every little town between Radium Hotsprings and Canal Flats.

And then we drank lots of beer.

There is a lot of nice scenery, but not as much wildlife as Leader.

I've put a bunch of pictures on the webpage. There are 4 pages of pictures in total which you can link to from the first one.

Great pics R&S!

Sure is lovely country out there. I definintely miss the smell of forest, but I sure do love the prairies. You should brought back some lovely forest floor! Would have been nice to smell rotting pine needles again!

Man I cant wait to back to BC. I went to Whistler last summer for a golf trip and the mountains are incredible. Being a good ol Ontario boy it was a real treat to be out there with all that scenery and no pollution for once. Great pics.
Cheers, Ryan
