Columbia Ice Fields

Naturally we had to stop at the Columbia Ice Fields and head out on to the glacier. It was pretty cool, really. I was a bit alarmed at the potential environmental damage of the buses travelling out there all the time, but as someone pointed out, better controlled excursions than uncontrolled. Unfortunately, I didn't have the white balance set properly for snow and ice, so the pictures aren't properly exposed. You can still get the idea, hopefully.

The SnoCoaches were cool as well. I was shocked to hear that the first hill heading to the icefield is a 32% grade - that's steep!

This yellow bus thing was at the visitors' centre. I couldn't resist a picture of it.
