Oh Canada. Banff National Park, Lake Louise, and a visit with my cousin Annette

While in Glacier National I realized how close I was to Calgary where my cousin has lived for the past 40 years or so.

I did some online research and found a sporting goods store in Kalispell Montana that provides gun lockers for those wishing to visit Canada as all handguns are banned.

I had a great time sightseeing and reconnecting with my cousin.

Lake Louise is a beautiful turquoise color and a great, dog friendly place to visit.

Banff National Park is wild and beautiful.

We sat around most evenings reminiscing and retelling family stories, exchanged pictures and lamented about how the families only get together for funerals.

She gave me this great picture of four of the five Andrews sisters, with her mom, the fifth sister’s picture on the mantle behind.

Family portrait also taken at June’s funeral. How I wish I had been there.

Now how did Ruby’s picture get in there? Oh well, never mind.

I successfully recovered my weapons from Montana.

Next is Idaho, Washington, and more vehicle maintenance woes.

    We had a wonderful time together, even though we were held hostage by Ruby. I’ll send some pics of my home which you never visited – no worries. I hope all is well now that you’re in the warm parts of the USA.
    Hope to see you again soon, and it better not be another funeral.
    Love ❤️ you lots – Annette

    Wow what a beautiful family 🙂 I wish you were in the picture too…
    I would have wanted to jump in that turquoise river :))))))
    thanks for sharing your family….

    This Canadian mountain lake – Lake Louise – is ICE COLD, and while it looks exquisite, it’s not a lake one would jump into.
