Libby, Montana - Henry's Cafe
Libby, Montana - Henry's Cafe
The best meal, the friendliest service, the most enjoyable "atmosphere" - dinner at Henry's Cafe in Libby, Montana, where we spent night one of our one week road trip. "Ma'am. can I order off the breakfast menu for dinner?". "Sure you can hon. Order anything you like". So I did. Bacon, biscuits and gravy, two eggs, hash browns and a tall glass of ice cold milk - - which the friendly small town waitress didn't forget. Life is good in the slow lane. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The story: Canada eh? Canadian Rocky Mountain Road Trip October 2011. A one week road trip and a couple short day hikes in Kootenay; Banff; and Jasper National Parks and Peter Lougheed Provincial Park in Kananaski country. The success of a road trip (or hike, or backpacking trip), many times is directly proportional to the amount of planning you put into before the trip. Deciding on what you want to see is best done before the trip when you have the time and tools such as maps, guide books, internet, plus the valuable photos and information you can access on flickr- to research the trip properly. No doubt about it, with a road trip you can have fun by just “winging it” and even with a plan, a good road trip demands that you be willing to alter the plan at any time due to weather and what you find, once the road trip begins. I have taken a fair number of road trips solo; many with my wife; and some with friends. Solo allows you total freedom to go where you like, stay as long as you like, and see the sights that are highest on you list. Freedom and independence. The trouble then with a solo trip is you are limited by your own research, planning, and predilections - no consultation, collaboration, or collective pooling of ideas and possibilities. By default, you are restricted by the boundaries of your own knowledge and research. On this road trip I “joined in” on a road trip my long time friend J.J. had planned. For those of you who may follow some of my photographs and trips on flickr, he was one of three who joined me on a backpacking trip into the Wind River Range of Wyoming, not all that long ago. J.J. approached the trip to the Canadian Rockies as a “photography” trip primarily and as a reconnaissance trip for future trips he might want to take, especially with his wife, who is also an accomplished photographer. He had never been there. I took this as an opportunity to “see once again” some of the sights of Jasper and Banff, where I had traveled with my wife almost 40 years ago; and travel to some places I had never been before; take a hike or two; and enjoy the mountain landscapes of British Columbia and Alberta, Canada. Looking back on this road trip already, I benefited greatly by J.J.’s research and many of the sites he had selected as being “high value” places, from a photographer’s viewpoint (or should I say “viewfinder”). I wouldn’t have seen my favorite places on this trip without J.J.’s diligent “in advance” research. In addition to seeing many places I wouldn’t have selected, and therefore would have missed if I had done this trip solo, I got to see an iPad (J.J.’s) in operation first hand, and of course came away from the trip with the feeling that one day I would NEED one. We took J.J.’s Subaru Forester on this trip, the same one the two of us had survived a nasty hood denting (yep a few of the dents are still there) hail storm near Banks, Idaho in 2006 - - one of our first of many road trips together. J.J. brought along two “books on CD” to make the less scenic portions of our drive a bit more interesting. Again, audio books were a first time experience for me and they really do go well with a road trip. The two audio books that J.J. brought along were both extremely interesting and enjoyable for me to listen to (though with my extremely poor hearing, he had to keep the volume up toward the “pegged on high” levels, so I could enjoy the stories). The two books were: 1. American Sketches by Walter Isaacson (a collection of interesting biographies of people from Einstein to Bill Gates). 2. Mission: Black List #1 by Eric Maddox (Story of the Army interrogator’s work which allowed U.S. forces to find Saddam Hussein). The photographs I will post in this photo set, will tell the story of “what” we saw better than I could hope to accomplish with words, so I won’t try. Here though are a few of the highlights of the trip (from my perspective) and an anecdote or two, which I can’t resist throwing in: *Henry’s Cafe for dinner and Libby’s Cafe for huckleberry flapjacks for excellent food and friendly small town service in Libby, Montana. *When you see a sign saying “Texas Gate”, it is “Canadian” for “cattle guard”. I saw several thus labeled in Kananaski Country. *Coming up on Kootenay National Park I saw my first time ever “BADGER CROSSING” road sign. There were of course the signs for elk, moose, mountain goat, bighorn sheep and we saw one fresh road kill black bear…but a badg

alcatraz inside out......
Ok, enough playing with the new cam & being sidetracked by bokeh.... back to my old cam & our trip to San Francisco in June. Alcatraz. The Rock. 22 acre island prison, in San Francisco Bay, from1933-1963. Lead image taken through a window in what would have been the common room. An inmate's view of freedom? The prison closed in 1963. In 1969, native american activists occupied Alcatraz & after a 19 month stand-off successfully gained significant indian rights. Taken over by the National Park Service in 1972, Alcatraz reopened as an ecological reserve, bird sanctuary & with public access to the prison facilities. Currently, it is San Francisco's most popular tourist attraction. The ferries run several times a day & all are often fully booked days in advance. Best to prebook via internet. Price of a ticket includes a self-guided audio tour & you can stay on the island as long a time as you wish. It's a welcoming well-run environement, no concessions or trashy souvenir shops to be found. The audio tour is excellent & with an outstanding soundtrack that puts you there, in the moment. The section that audibly re-enacts the May 1946 failed prison escape known as the Battle of Alcatraz suggests all the intensity of the dire situation. 3 prison officers were killed & many more seriously injured. In 1962, 3 prisoners did escape by crawling through an air vent. The swimming distance to the mainland is 1.5 miles. After the 3 dove into the rough frigid late night waters of the bay they were never seen or heard from again. The official report lists them presumed drowned. 50 years later, however they are still on the FBI's Most Wanted list. More fanciful to imagine they got away, and like Biggs, made it to South America & freedom. The escape was dramatized in the 1979 movie "Escape from Alcatraz, with Clint Eastwood. The island has a fascinating history dating back thousands of years. Definitely worth a visit. . . lead image : no texture treatment....as is, shot through the window
