Photographer's Note

August 1, 2005.
We leave Revelstoke in British Colombia for Canmore in Alberta. We change also time zone. The road leads us by the Rogers Pass. A passage between the east and the west which was discovered by the chief engineer A.B. Rogers of the company of the railroad of Canadian Pacifique. The collar was used by the railroad of 1882 to 1916. The crossing was so dangerous, because of the avalanche and the strong slope which one ends up digging the Connaught tunnel. In 1962 the collar was again used, but this time was to complete the transcanadienne by the road. At the top of this collar, at 1322m, we met our first digger squirrel. We hastened to make photographs of them. But thereafter saw we a lot of them everywhere.
