The first thing we saw when we left Muncho Lake on Saturday morning was this:
The rest of the day looked mostly like this:
Then today my first photo was this! Yup, three days in a row!
We are now in Calgary. Tomorrow the USA! It was a good day, after I recovered from yet another bout of seafood poisoning. We opted to eat breakfast at the little restaurant next to the hotel we stayed in last night in Jasper. The special was eggs, bacon, breakfast potatoes and toast. Okay, no toast please, eggs over easy. Pretty simple, uh? No seafood there. Wrong! If the breakfast potatoes aren't pan fried, but are deep fried in the same oil that calamari has been fried in, the potatoes may be contaminated! I ate a couple of pieces before it dawned on me that they weren't pan fried, and I called the waitress over. She confirmed that they were fried in oil that shellfish had been fried in. Well, thanks a lot! I didn't get as sick as the halibut incident, but I got extremely dizzy, tingly, and itchy throat. Took about 3 hours to feel normal again. So I guess the moral of the story is: Don't eat out! And if you do, ask, ask, ask about every morsel of food! In defense of Jasper however, I had an awesome piece of lasagna last night. It was gluten free noodles, spinach, sweet potatoes, and goat cheese with a tasty red sauce. Nummy!
