Local tourists...

That's what Todd and I were today! We woke up to some serious RAIN in Canmore this morning, and even though the weather channel made it look like it was socked in all the way to Jasper, we decided to drive back to Red Deer via the Columbia Icefields anyhow. It was well worth the effort! The skies didn't completely clear off, but we did manage to outrun the precipitation. We stopped at a few viewpoints along the way, including the Icefields Interpretive Centre, and then we had a great visit in Rocky Mountain House with our (long lost!) friend Ken and his new bride Mercy.
It was the perfect day to be tourists in our 'own back yard'! Yeah Rockies!
