Eivor Kuchta level-classic 7/17/2012 7:46:12 AM

Wow, this is so great, with the dramatic sky and the light on the dunes. Not a place I want to go to now, with the hot (for us) weather we've had this summer. Stay cool! #10233363

PATRICIA A. CASEY level-classic 7/17/2012 9:38:43 AM

Thank you Eivor....no....not a place for right now. We were there early June returning from picking up our travel trailer in Texas...way too hot for hiking. The evening wasn't too bad though. This photo was taken in March of 2009.....actually got to do some hiking then....it is a beautiful park. Have a wonderful day! #10233453

Karen Celella level-classic 7/25/2012 9:21:30 AM

Beautiful, Patricia! I hope to be able to visit there again someday. We only spent one evening there and it was far from enough time. #10243718

Thank you Karen & Kitty for your very kind comments...sorry for the delayed response...am sitting in Starbucks in Canmore AB really close to Banff....our campground does not have wifi access that is reliable...so Starbucks it is....I think the next part of my journey will be even more limited...up to Jasper for a few days....Am having a great time visiting the beautiful National Parks in Canada!...Have a glorious day ...warmest regards.... #10249166
