Home time

This was yesterday, part way along the trail to Peyto Lake and Bow Summit; this morning when I went out at 9am, the temperature according to the thermometer in the car was -7.

Today, I drove out to Lake Minnewanka which is only a few miles from Banff. It was one of those crisp, clear winter days when the sun is shining, the sky is blue, and the snowy mountains look stark and impressive. After a short walk and a few photos, I drove back into Banff, had lunch at the "other" conference (Applied Qualitative Research, as opposed to Qualitative Health Research), did some shopping and am now waiting for the bus to Calgary Airport.

It has been an excellent trip, well worth it from the conference/networking point of view, and the social/having a holiday point of view. Next year's conference is in Vancouver, and 2010 may be a bit closer to home; hopefully I'll be back next year.

More photos will be on here on flickr in due course

Hi Sal - would you believe it, I was at the 'other' conference (AQR) and also climbed to the top of the mountain, rode on the cable car and stopped for a massage and hot pool before going back down!

Great to see you are doing some scriptwriting, lots of love from Gill and your fairy god-daughter Pixie! Anna at University - wow! xx
