Yearning for the back trails of the Rocky Mountains

Back in South Jordan, Utah, USA, fresh from the beautiful red colors of Bryce Canyon in southern Utah. If you missed the photo of the stunningly beautiful Bryce Canyon, just click on this link to my previous article, posted Sunday, July 18, 2010:  Sunday: Home from Bryce Canyon country, Utah

Visiting Bryce Canyon country made me yearn for a hike in the Canadian Rockies, the majestic Rocky Mountains, in British Columbia, Canada.

Takakkaw Falls in Yoho National Park, near Field, BC, Canada









My sister Anita and I used to hike the back country in Yoho National Park, near Field, BC, Canada. (See photos above.)

Back in the early 1980s we had a policy of going to the mountains at least once a year. We should get back to that, eh!?

We hiked the Iceline Trail, opposite Takakkaw Falls, and took the photo of the distant falls at left above.

Breathtaking country!

You heard the one about Yoho National Park in the Canadian Rockies?

This guy from the US had spent several years traveling all over the place and at each place he would seek out “the green phone.” For those of you who don’t know (yet), “the green phone” is a pay phone with a direct line to God. The guy would always ask the cost of the phone call to God. Prices varied from $1,000 a minute to $10,000 a minute, depending on where “the green phone” was located, eh? 😮

The guy arrives in Yoho National Park in the Canadian Rockies and of course, as usual, seeks out “the green phone.”

The cost to call God? Only 50 cents a minute.

“Wow,” says the guy. “Why so little?”

“This is God’s country.”

“It’s a local call.” 😮

To the glory of the mountains everywhere!
