Springtime in the Rockies

Emerald Lake Lodge, Field, BC

Sad to say, but I've never experienced
Springtime in the Rockies, except for the song.

Maybe it's time to go east, middle aged woman, go east!

Through May 31, Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts is offering two special packages. They include:

Savour the Rockies Package - Guests receive a copy of CRMR’s cookbook, Simple Treasures; the company’s signature homemade mustard melons; one night's accommodation and breakfast for two.

Western Canada Special - For the more budget-minded traveler hailing from Alberta and the rest of Western Canada. One night's accommodation at a reduced rate.
