Alaska and Canadian Rockies

I am returning to blogging after a holiday in Alaska and the Canadian Rockies , a marvellous experience which I can heartily recommend to everyone. The wild and untouched wilderness we saw was simply breathtaking and foaming water racing down gorges brought to mind the words of Coleridge in Kubla Khan
And here were forests ancient as the hills,

Enfolding sunny spots of greenery.
But oh! that deep romantic chasm which slanted
Down the green hill athwart a cedarn cover!
A savage place! as holy and enchanted
As e'er beneath a waning moon was haunted
By woman wailing for her demon-lover!
