Around the Bend

Oil painting of the Rocky Mountaineer gliding around the bend beside Shuswap Lake,
British Columbia

My husband leaned out from the small platform between coaches to photograph the Rocky Mountaineer gliding around a bend beside Shuswap Lake, British Columbia. It was August of 2011. Our first trip out West was in celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary and Lake Louise and Banff would be our final destinations.

After visiting flower-bedecked Victoria on Vancouver Island and the unbelievable Butchart Gardens, we ferried back to the mainland to   board the Rocky Mountaineer Train in Vancouver for a trip through the Canadian Rockies.

Looking it up later on, I found that the lake in this painting, Shuswap, is situated near Salmon Arm. Made up of long bodies of water, it is shaped like an addled letter H. It is one of the most popular recreational destinations in south-central BC with 400 km of flawless shoreline.

Something we did not realize was that Canada had desert regions. As we journeyed through barren areas and sagebrush towards Kamloops for an overnight, we were astonished to see irrigation systems spraying out water in order to grow hay!

Aboard the Rocky Mountaineer once again, the mountain scenery we were rolling by—and sometimes tunnelling through—could only be described as SPECTACULAR!
