Hi MB. Sorry for the delay writing back. I just found this spot as a quick detour on a longer trip, and researched the immediate area. I have no info about these places, though it sounds like a good study when I have the time!
Thanks for your comments.
Yes, it is true, Google Earth works in mysterious ways that we may not understand this side of Heaven. I think this is fantastic! My hat is off to the photographer and the model!
Ohhooo! Great angle!
Perhaps we could do a joint venture some time -- herpetologist and photographer?
Many thanks for the place-name Samson. I didn't see any destination signs for this place, but it's an excellent place on the Trans-Canada to stop and stretch the legs.
Thanks for the comments K. They are appreciated!
That is a very lovely Schipperke. You see the dogs from Belgium are like the people, very very nice.....
Now that's awesome! I drove past the glaciers in Banff NP a few years back but wasn't able to inspect them close-up. Where I live now I get to see the aftermath of ancient glaciers every day. It's scraped rock to the north, and to the south the remains of the Champlain Sea and a huge glacial outflow valley that is so immense, most people don't realize they're living in the middle of it.
Thanks for your answer Craig. Glaciers are interesting. It snows so much at NZ that there are a couple of glaciers (fast moving,wet glaciers) that reach down into a moderate climate, actually occupying the same space as a rainforrest.
