LC^3T: Calgary – Vancouver


in Canada, Daily updates, Travel

This last section is happening in what may be Greyhound’s oldest bus. The overhead storage space is too small for almost all bags, so there is zero leg room for everyone with carry-on bags piled everywhere.

Still, the end is in sight. One more long and nearly moonless night, and I will be in Vancouver. It is a shame there won’t be much of a mountain view from Revelstoke, due to darkness and bad weather. All my daylight hours were boreal forest or prairie views.

I am looking forward to seeing you. Thank you for making such an odyssey to see us.

Our permanent veil of cloud ruined all the good meteor shower viewing, too. :P See you soon.

I saw nothing of the Rockies. Due to fog and darkness, the only major sign of crossing them was feeling pressure changes in my ears.

Actually, the Greyhound runs far too fast to let you actually see Canada. To do that, you would have to travel more exclusively by daylight, and explore parts of town more than a few metres away from bus terminals.

Now in Kamloops, waiting to change coaches yet again.

I have a seriously sore posterior, having left Ottawa the morning of the day before last.

I was amazed how cheery you were and good you looked after coming off the bus for 74 hours. Well done.
