One forgets how beautiful our country gets from Ottawa through Northern Ontario, over Lake Superior and across the prairies. 3,500 kms so far...the prairies are not flat (except around Winnipeg and Regina). It's a steady climb over gently rolling hills, from verdant fields to desert...and, then the mountains. We are in Calgary today and off to enjoy the Banff parks before travelling north to Jasper and further west to Prince Rupert.
