Over the past 35 years our travels have taken us to most corners of the USA and Canada. My wife and/or I have also had the fortune to visit a number of destinations in Mexico, the Caribbean Islands, South America and Europe. But never have we experienced such extraordinarily beautiful scenerery, natural majesty and breath-taking landscapes as we did in late September 2007 on our road tour along the spectacular Icefields Parkway in the Candian Rockies.
I bet few of you wine-lovers out there in LL-land know of or have ever visited this lush regionof southernBritish Columbia in Canada. It stretches north from just over the Washington State border line.An easy drive from Seattle, it boasts an unusually mild climate (even now in February it doesn't usually have any snow), is quite picturesque with gently rolling hills and bountiful farmlands that produce lots of delicious apples, nuts, and grapes.
