Once again, I found my self having trouble sleeping. So I decided that maybe it was a good time to put down a few of my thoughts, reflections, and feelings about the trip so far.
I have decided that am going to start by talking about where I am now. Then work my way back to were the trip started. At this very moment I am laying on a cot in a room at the Lake Louise Inn. It is 12:55AM, and I can't sleep, and I am quiet honestly far from a sleeping state.

Since I was allowed to sleep in a little later on this particular day I did ad took full advantage of it. I eventually had to pull my body up from the inflatable mattress, that it wanted so to stay glued to so badly. When I was up I had a bowl of Frosted Flakes and a ManDrink (a mix of Hot Chocolate and Coffee) and then loaded my junk in to my pockets. After I finished preparing for my day I had to move all my crap to the much small room next door that I am currently sitting in as I write. After that I headed for the car grabbing my camera on the way. When we were all loaded in to the car we headed out for Feld in Yoho National Park it is a very small town that sits along side some railroad tracks on the way to Feld we made to stops one at a beautiful cascade just on the side of the highway and the other was a spiral turnaround track that is dug in to the mountains to allow trains to get in and out of these remote areas. After Feld we went to A natural bridge on the way to Emerald Lake it was a beautiful green colored lake from the lake we took a trail to Hamilton falls it was about a half of a mile hike but the falls were the favorite thing I have seen so far on this trip. After that we went to a 1200 ft water fall called tokonow falls or something like that and after we were done there we headed back for the day.

I woke up in my very comfortable bed and got up took a shower and made a man drink to go along with my breakfast we loaded up the car with all are crap and headed to far less luxurious Lake Louise Inn. After that we went to moraine lake that was a spectacular blue color then we took a fairly long hike to consolation lake Pop did not join us on this hike because he feared he would roll his ankle this was one of my favorite things on the trip then headed to a very cool slot canyon that got extremely deep at the end. After that it was late so we headed In for the day and at dinner at a overpriced buffet.
