Ha ha...that Bing Bot is such a lurker!

Puffin....bulletin board activity is such a mystery. There's probably an interesting thesis topic in there somewhere.

People come and go and often come back after a hiatus...I've noticed this on all of the forums and boards I'm involved with. I suspect life (and sometimes death) gets in the way.....or maybe its me? :shock: :shock:

Margo,

I thought you might like to see the reality of my Avatar and how appropriate it is. It took years for me to finally get back here.

These are a few shots of my hike to Mt. Edith Cavell and the alpine meadows this summer.

Wow Jim - I am in awe. Firstly of the magnificent scenery .... secondly of your stamina. That doesn't look like it would be a Sunday afternoon stroll. :D

Thanks so much for sharing - I hope we can get back to the Jasper area sometime - we visited our daughter working there in Banff a few years ago, and fell in love with the alpine landscape.

Cheers Margo

Belated thanks to the "fairy" for my avatar. Like a few others, try as I might I could not get any of my photos to reduce down small enough - the pixel limits are very challenging! So thank you Margo - this one will do nicely, as it's one of my treasures.
