Pacific Northwest Fly-Drive Road Trip - August 2009

Back in August of 2009, a little before I started this blog, we flew from San Diego to Spokane, WA, picked up a rental car and spent the next 2 weeks wandering around Washington, British Columbia, Alberta and Montana.  Now, 6 years later, here are a few images from that 2,300 mile driving trip.

We found a great hiking trail along an old abandoned rail line just outside of Hope, British Columbia.

Not too far from there we rode the Hell's Gate Air Tram down to the edge of the Fraser River.

Emerald Lake, in Canada's Yoho National Park, was amazing.

Equally amazing was the view from the top of Sulphur Mountain, near Banff.

Summertime can generally make for some dramatic weather, such as this cloud formation in the distance, with the Bow River at Banff in the foreground.  We hit (or got hit, actually) by a pretty big hailstorm on this trip.

We spent a night at the Many Glacier Hotel on Swiftcurrent Lake, in Glacier National Park.

We hit some heavy fog towards the top of Logan Pass on Going to the Sun Highway in Glacier NP.
