Dad has been texting me non-stop of all the beautiful places he's seen and the amazing people he has been meeting along the way, mostly French-speaking natives. Sounds Challenging! He says that Canada has opened his heart and has made him a better person. Right on dad! You alone, it will only make you stronger!
Dad - "Linus, I miss you big guy! Wish you were here along with your friend Moises. You guys got all the love I need right now."
Dad - "There are so many doggies here! I wish you and Moises were here so we could all hang out together! But I don't know if we will ever see him again because big goat no longer wants us grazing around her mountains, but Moises will always have a place in our heart. Memories crossed my path when I drove through Moses Lake and I immediately looked out the window to see if I could spot him, but no joy :(."
Me - "It's alright dad. Moises will always be in our heart, and when we both go to puppy heaven, we will come to visit you. You can count on us :)"
Dad - "Thank you magooster. It has been an amazing trip so far. Being that it's my first time doing a road trip by myself, and this far, it's really a unique, wonderful and a truly eye-opening experience. I've driven so many miles and have seen extraordinary things, that alone again, I may never see."
Dad - "Driving through Canada has been an awesome experience. Although sometimes the rules are confusing here and I feel like I'm challenged by Lyudmila Rudenko on a game of chess, and not really knowing when to make my next move, I manage to somehow go the right direction and not get trapped in trickeries. The feeling of driving alone through the up's and down's of the vast and beautiful mountain ranges, around the rim of huge bodies of water, through interesting wildlife which includes bears, elk, moose, bison, and of course, beautiful nature the Canadian rocky mountain has to offer, well, this drive has allowed me the opportunity to reflect on many things in life. It's been a wildish ride."
Dad - "I've put almost 4000 miles on Molly and she is running strong. This trip is only an introduction to many more in the near future. Therefore, I am excited for December so I can begin my South America road trip! I hope!
Dad - "I've seen lots of interesting things and even went off course to pick up hitchhikers the other week. Because I feel like a homeless myself sometimes, I needed to help them."
The Icefields Parkway is truly stunning in person.
I found Molly's twin sister.
All lakes in the National Parks are beautiful. Especially on a kayak :)
Back roads of infinite beauty.
I saw a marmot and now I want one!
What is a marmot you may ask? Watch this video to be mesmerized by cuteness!!!!!!!!
Goats are everywhere. As they should because they are 2nd mans best friend.
Another beautiful lake
I guess you can go potty with 5 or 6 of your buddies. Sharing is caring?
Bear claw anyone?
