When Jamie and Clem Barrere admired photos of the Canadian Rockies they decided to take a 12-day train trip to see Lake Louise, Lake Moraine and Peyto Lake themselves. When they saw a waterfall that produced a perfect rainbow, it was an omen. In Canada, they learned the National Parks are for the animals first, and humans second. They saw several “animal bridges” that were built at a cost of millions, solely for the purpose of allowing animals to migrate from one side of the scenic highway to the other, to avoid the busy traffic. Many bears and wildlife were watched from a two-day coach trip where the driver would slow down or pull over while the animals were in view. Tame life after all.
