Re: Glacier vs. jasper and lake Louise.

Re: Current weather?

We hiked stoney Indian in a torrent back in the day. Shin deep water rushing down the trail. Hopefully milder conditions for those out now.

Ring the bell. fire season is over.

Re: Delta airline

when we had to fly back early in july the agent quoted a $208.50 penalty per ticket. but just some friendly prodding got her to drop the $200. the agents have more leeway than a lot of folks realize. if the original agent holds fast, ask for a supervisor, but be nice about it.
