Rookie - 10 Points (1955 / Montgomery, Alabama)

Wild Canadian Rockies - Poem by JOHNNY COBB

The remote Canadian wilderness
Majestic forests of fir, spruce and pine.
The abundance of animal wildlife
Longhorn sheep, grizzlies, moose and porcupines.

Sno-Coach ride to Athabasca Glacier
On the glistening Columbia Icefields.
A gondola ride at Jasper or Banff
What an awesome sight this mountain view yields.

Pet one hundred forty one sled dogs
At Canmore's Kennels of the Snowy Owl.
And at Golden's Northern Lights Wolf Center
Watch the wild wolves yip, moan and howl.

Your eyes strain at Kootenay's green vastness
Drive hundreds of miles on Trans-Canada 1.
As you head toward the mighty Pacific
Enjoy B.C.'s Natural Fun!

Fly-fish, hike or raft through these Rockies
Stunning beauty at Louise and Moraine Lakes.
Explore Yoho's Wapta or Takakkaw Falls
A repeat trip you'll soon want to make.
