The Beaver Beats the Eagle At Sochi

The Beaver Beat the Eagle today at the Sochi Olympics.

Go Canada Go!!!!

Pretty cold outside here in BC. We drove through the mountains
and got stuck there after the snow began to fall.
All the roads were shut down and when they were open
the drive through was treacherous and beautiful.
Truly God's Country, for the strong and free.

It took us a long time to get through them doing 90 degree
turns on a highway with just 2 lanes.

We did see mountain goats, a moose, and a deer.
It's truck country up in them hills.
One hit a moose at our hotel and it dented the left hand front
end pretty good. Had it been a small car, the people would have died.
The moose would have gone through the front window.
It is cow and horse country . Rodeos and the old west
is still in full swing and there for many to enjoy.
Along the road sides are little stores with Indian names
selling mineral stones and even gold.
I thought I'd have a chance to taste some venison but no one sold it
unless you went to some farm and bought a lot of it to bring home.

Went by some pretty awesome mountain water in Lillouette
It was under BC Hydro Management.
 They keep the best for themselves lol
Soo blue and clean and gated ! Very private.
You don't see water like this anymore.
 The local people are so friendly and
especially the hotels are pet friendly.
It's so nice to see.
The heaters in the rooms were all in perfect working
condition and they kept the rooms HOT!

I have to say I had a great time in spite of the driving stress
the road conditions provided. I finally got a doze of
Quebec weather. Fresh cool air, perfect white snow along
with a nice hot shot of brandy.
That's the life!

Well let's see how our Canucks manage out in Sochi.
So far so good.

The Canadian hockey teams are doing very well in Sochi. I hope they both get gold medals. The mountains can be gorgeous in winter, but you definitely can not be in a hurry when driving through them.
