Mount Michener

David Thompson HIghway

David Thompson Highway at Aurum Lodge

Before we left Aurum Lodge, while we were exploring the edges of Abraham Lake, we turned to the west and were treated to a rainbow!

As we headed north along the David Thompson Highway towards Nordegg and Crescent Falls (next post) we stopped to look at Mount Michener.  Mount Michener is named after Canada’s 20th Governor General, Roland Michener, who served from 1967 to 1974.

You can also see the mountain across the lake from Aurum Lodge, where we stayed (fourth photo in the post which is linked here.)

      Thanks for commenting because it has confirmed that this did post! Our power was out when it was scheduled to post on Tuesday, so I forced it to post today. Yes it was gorgeous and a great time to visit since there was so little traffic and so few people.

      The Rockies are so majestic. It’s a trip every Canadian should be able to take, not to mention people from green and pleasant lands!
