Life Is For The Birds; A Fish Called Wanda

We left Kelowna under threatening skies at about 8:30 this morning, headed for Lake Louise. Due to road construction and rockslides, combined with the change to Mountain Time and a pit stop in Revelstoke, we arrived about an hour later than we had anticipated. It is a beautiful drive nonetheless:

We are sharing a campsite with a large rig, which we had not expected, but drinks and a bowl full of trail mix made things bearable. We had not sat down for 30 seconds before the Whiskeyjacks appeared en masse.

Then it was on to the motherlode:

We went to the nightly presentation at the amphitheatre, where a fish called Wanda educated us about the need to re-design culverts to enable fish migration:

After the presentation, we went to the Village for a few grocery items and ice cream cones, then returned to the campsite as darkness fell. Weather permitting, we plan to take a shuttle up to Lake Louise tomorrow.
