The Canadian Rockies

These are some of photographs we took in the Canadian Rockies where we spent two weeks in July/August of 2006. They are on this page in approximate reverse chronological order. You can best view these pictures through a slide show, a visual travelog - with a short narrative for each photo. If you want a copy of any of our photos, let us know.
