The Rockies



Wildlife in the Rockies is spectacular:
Moose, Elk and Grizzly Bear tatter common care
Squirrel, Marmot and Chipmunk erase city funk
Salmon, Pike and Rainbow Trout refresh the "dine out"
Eagle, Falcon and Osprey top a perfect day

Vista in the Rockies is spectacular:
Rock flour colored lakes churned by glacier breaks
Tightly tree lined forests piled on the foothill crests
Majestic mountain peaks tweaked by windy shrieks
Columns of stone statues formed spellbound milieus

Travel in the Rockies is spectacular:
"Going To The Sun Road" takes a bright zip code
Crossing the Logan Pass reaches alpine class
The Columbia Icefield gives a musing yield
Scaling the Sunwapta leaves a breathless awe
