Leaving the Rockies

Sad to leave Jasper - our favourite destination of the trip. A few memories here of the last two days:

Sam and Tom went Western Horse Riding, here Tom with his favourite horse and soon to be favourite
trail guide.
 Manouvering the horse into demounting block
 Very happy Cowboy to be
I meanwhile poked about the woods and among a mist of mosquitos found this Hairy Woodpecker
 Final memories and some eight Black Bears on the last day

 including this Cinnamon Black Bear and cub
 Mount Robson, the highest point in The Rockies  at 3962m high
 Enjoying one of their favourite foods - dandelions
 however still capable of outrunning someone on horseback and have been know to attack when annoyed
Noise of the forests goes to Varied Thrush, difficult to see, and near impossible to photograph but their mournful, long whistle was a top moment of the trip
