We get a late start
on another hazy morning
as fires burn elsewhere in the mountains.
There are hoodoos in Banff,
but only a couple.
The Bow Valley Parkway is more interesting,
even if our wildlife sightings are limited to
a single black bear
crossing the road ahead of us.
We have lunch at Storm Mountain Lodge
and then wander along Kootenay’s Marble Canyon where
silky turquoise water glides
between silver walls.
