From MSF to MSF

I left Mt St Francis in Dubuque Iowa on the 3oth of August and arrived in Canada on the 31st.  To my great surprise and delight I found out we were staying at a retreat center called Mt St  Francis!

This MSF is run by Franciscan Friars who are very generous and hospitable.  And what a spiritual place to begin a pilgrimage.  The first animals we saw were 5 beautiful black horses, one with a white marking on her forehead that looked like a heart.

On September 2 we started our journey into the mountains to find the ice fields and then the Athabasca River.  There will be many photos  to add once I return home!
