My husband Dick and I really enjoyed meeting Mara when we visited The Netherlands in April. When she came to Canada, Dick was busy but, with our dog Lindy for company, I drove west from home while Mara drove south from the Edmonton airport. We met in Airdrie to embark from there the next day on a whirlwind 2-day tour of "the best of Alberta according to Kay"!
These photos were taken on our way to the Rocky Mountains, and during our visit to beautiful Lake Louise, one of Canada's top tourist destinations.
Above: We stopped at the Ghost Lake Marina, west of Cochrane. Autumn colors lined the boat ramp.
Below: We looked across man-made Ghost Lake toward the mountains as the sky began to clear.
