Teton Dam Marathon

I know it was a few weeks ago, but here are a couple pictures from our half-marathon.

I wish there were some action shots, but it's kinda hard when we're running together the whole time, ya know? It was so fun, despite the pain! And we have a new found respect for anyone who can do a whole marathon, I don't think we'll ever try that!

Our trip, in chronological order:

After driving through Montana, I decided I want to live there, and here are my reasons why:

Reason #1

Reason #2

Reason #3

Crossing the border

Finally, we got to Calgary

Downtown Calgary

The Calgary Olympic Park. I had a cousin who ski jumped off this to see how he measured up to the Olympians...he broke his leg on it.

The day before we left, we took a trip into Banff National Park

There's nothing like the Canadian Rockies!

We saw some sweet wildlife!

Like this family of rams; a daddy and 2 babies!

And this elk that was just on his way across the street, he almost walked into our car!
In this picture he looks far away, but that's just because I was so scared when I was taking the pictures of him right outside my window that they came out all shaky!

We also went to beautiful Lake Louise

It was beautiful from the shore, but we had to hike a few "kilometers" to get this view

Of course, the trip wouldn't be complete without stopping at a chocolate shop to get some fudge!

We had such a wonderful time with my 2 favorite people!!

Although Canada was very nice, we came back home with an increased pride for our homeland!
