Winter Holiday Part 9 ~ winding down

Ahhh, the winding down after being wound up. We were stopped once again for avalanche control and they pointed us to the Glacier Park Lodge near the peak of Roger's Pass to pull over and wait.  We thought we'd use the washroom facilities ~ absolutely disgusting!  Some neat stuff inside and it looked all fancy, but hardly any of the toilets were working and it was pretty gross.

 If you've driven by Roger's Pass, this is the top of that swingy thing they have there... look at the snow!
 Tunnels are a great time to....
 hold your breath!
 Anyone for a Lollipop?

 So annoyed with trying to take a photo of the earrings I was wearing for the first time.
 At least the sun was shining!

Now this place is called "Three Valley Cap" and it's where 3 water ways converge.  It has new owners and they spent Millions of $ to fix it up.  There is banquet/restaurant/motel etc as well as an abandoned old town to tour.  Looks like such a tourist trap, but someday we said we'll stop in!
 I want a bunny like this one
 I love how they have bunnies, turkeys, chickens, guinea hens, pea cocks altogether
Ruth is letting the turkey read from the Bible

We got to see an Otter lying on a snowy dock in the lake, but the photos weren't near close enough.  I remember watching Otters play along the banks in Ontario and boy, they like to play!
Another safe trip and home safe n' sound.  Now to figure out how to get photos off Gregg's Iphone...
