Meadows in the Sky Parkway

After our stop at Rogers Pass we continued west to Revelstoke, BC and went up the Meadows in the Sky Parkway.  All the picture below are from that drive.
 The picture above and the two below this were taken after we just started up the parkway.  They show Revelstoke, BC from different angles.


 At the top there were some people feeding a couple birds and I managed to get several good shots of it.  Don't ask what kind of bird it is...all I know is that it is one with feathers. :)


The shot above and the one below were taken as we came back down the parkway.

Great shots, Neal - I hope to get up that road on my motorcycle when I'm down that way in June. Grey jays (a.k.a. Canada jays or Whiskey jacks) are wonderful birds to have around - they're real characters.

Looks like you are right up there in the clouds!
You're always telling me the birds pose for me. I think you were quite the bird whisperer yourself. :)
