Blue River

On The Canadian, Vancouver to Toronto

Normally passengers are not able to detrain in Blue River. But because we were ahead of schedule we got to stroll around for 10 minutes. That's about all the time it takes to see Blue River.

There is no snow on the ground which seems odd for the middle of November. I'm in Jasper now and it's +5º C and there is no snow on the ground. This looks like the last day of mild weather. Tonight the temp. will drop to -10º C and that looks like it will be the high temp. for the rest of the week.

Next stop Edmonton at 2300 and I'll likely be in bed.

Reminds me of the fictional town in Northern Exposure.
