Enid and I have seen a lot of very beautiful places this year — the Andes of Chile and Argentina, the fjords of Norway, to mention only two — yet little compares to the beauty of Canada which we have seen in the last month. First was the three most spectacular rapids and falls on the Churchill River in Saskatchewan — Kettle Falls, the Wapumon Gorge, and the last of Wintego Rapids — which Graeme and I canoed to at the end of July. Now Enid and I have once again visited some of our favorite hiking trails in Banff National Park. There is little that can outdo the beauty of the Canadian Rockies. Easily accessible, spectacularly beautiful, they really outdo most other natural beauties on earth. We’ve just returned from hiking in Banff for the last week. It was a spur-of-the-moment decision to go, but we enjoyed fantastic weather and some outstanding hiking trails.
