Podcast #25 My Trip to Canada

Published in the category General Practice, Travel

Three weeks ago my wife and I went on a trip to Canada. We rented a house in a town named Canmore, in the province of Alberta. Canmore is located just outside Banff National Park. We were in the Rocky Mountains of Canada. The house was spacious. Five members of our family were with us there. So there were seven of us altogether. My grandson got the largest room. We could see mountains through the living room window. Wild rabbits ate the grass on the back lawn. The trash cans were all designed so that bears cannot get into them. We could walk into town. The town has several nice restaurants. One night we had dinner in a Chilean restaurant. Canmore has over 100 kilometers of trails and paths within the town and nearby. A 10-minute drive took us onto mountain roads. There were signs everywhere warning about bears. The two kinds of bears living there are black bears and grizzly bears. There are also mountain lions in the area. On one hike we caught sight of a male deer. We took a gondola ride to the top of a mountain. The view was fantastic. The food they served in the restaurant up there was not very good. We split up into different groups depending on the activity. My son and brother-in-law went white water rafting. I went with my wife and sister-in-law to a rodeo in Calgary. My grandson spent time with everyone. The eight days we spent there seemed too short.
