When I was at Moraine Lake and Consolation Lakes (Moraine being the one on the old $20 bill, by the way...) two weeks ago I discovered this cool little picnic site by the water, but what drew me in was that it appeared to be completely wheelchair accessable. It dropped this wild idea into my brain that I now had a place to take my folks where Mom's wheelchair was no longer a "limitation"!
The long weekend was just the wrong time to even contemplate Moraine... anything close to Lake Louise or Banff would be just zooish... so... today was the day.
I'll stop yammering and share some photos... photos, by the way, made possible thanks to my generous nephew, D. who allowed Uncle David to borrow his camera! This camera has a timer on it! Very handy for the group photo you'll see at the end...

A SHOT THAT MAKES YOU WONDER JUST WHO'S WATCHING THE ROAD, ANYWAY??

US. THANKS TO D.'S INCREDIBLE TIMER... AND A HANDILY-SITUATED FENCE!
