THIS car, i saw go by at the parade. Didn't give it much thought. Upon looking at my photos for review, i finally GOT the message! Geesh, only took me a few beers!
(See, bears very well might be an issue in Canmore...what's up with 'bare'?)

Very clever name for a Senior Citizen hiking group--the Meanderthals!

The hilarity in having so many horses a part of the parade!

I hope that all my American friends are having a truly joyous 4th of July today!

Celebrate, Celebrate!

I love those pictures.

I forgot my camera this year so no parade pictures for me.

Hope you had wonderful Canada Day.

What a colorful parade, and I just love the backdrop of the mountain range.

You captured some rather funny moments. Gotta love the guy watering the flower in the equestrian poop.

I took a go-zillion pictures of our parade this afternoon. Maybe sometime in the next decade I'll get around to posting some.

Fantastic shots! There are a ton of Canadians in The Netherlands and they had a big celebration in Amsterdam. Happy Belated Canada Day!

Do you ever take that gorgeous scenery for granted?

Unbelievable.

Meanderthals is hilarious!

Parades are the greatest! But I learned at a young age that if I was going to IN a parade I was going to be BEFORE the horses :-)

Happy SIMC,
