Yoho & Banff National Park, Canada: Day 2

After a small detour to visit Thai On The Fly (five stars) in the outskirts of Salmon [sal-muhn] Arm, we arrived in Revelstoke to our small overprice room at the Swiss Chalet Motel (two star).  It was so small that it became comical.  We had to climb over each other to move around.  Sunday morning, we drove to church in Golden.  We pulled in right in time, only to discover that we had neglected the time zone change, which made us an hour late.  The LDS Church in Golden is small, only five members. The branch President was very nice and allowed us to partake of the sacrament.  Taylor bore a fine testimony and that was church in nutshell. 

We really wanted to see some bears so we a took a recommended detour... but no bears.  Finally we got back on Highway 1 and drove into Yoho Nation Park and stopped in Field to inquire about bears. The park ranger told us some crazy stories about bears but at the end of the day we had none of our own.  It was beautiful country nonetheless.
