That's where I "Force Quit" and restart, but I'm not on an iPad.

Wenatchee. I have been to national forests but this one is really grand.

We will be back to the Bighorns. Wish we had been years ago like you.

I take it you had no real towing problems getting in and out of Banff and Jasper. After 14 and 14a, we are just wondering!

I was curious about the blue skies in some of your pictures as just east of you here in Spokane we have had grey smoky sky for days - never was able to view that Blue Moon! Our air quality is terrible.
If you enjoy the scenery in Washington State you are are in for a treat traveling through the mountains of British Columbia and Alberta which are even more majestic and beautiful IMHO.

I tested the photo upload on an iPad. Even though it let me upload four pics, it only posted the last of the four. ThankYouVeryMuch.

We did not have the trailer on when we went to Banff as we had left it in Chilliwak for the installation of solar, and a surge protector however we did not encounter any grades that were any more challenging than many found in the Ameeican west. In fact I was impressed with the design and construction of many of the Canadian highways. The heavy use by logging and heavy haul trucks who all seem to be making it ok, gives one confidence about drive ability with lesser rigs. One of the most challenging grades we encountered with the trailer was on the west side of the Wenachee NF as we approached Leavenworth. You'll do fine, no worries. As others have said, don't be afraid to use the transmission and buzz that engine for braking assist. You can always find a pullout and let her cool down if need be. There's no shame in being safe and taking your time

I understand that Apple iPads and iPhones don't use Flash, due to their war against the excessive memory used in the mobile version. They wanted to stay with better memory friendly options that are out there. This is why many websites don't work as well on Apple mobile devices. Their laptops and desktop computers work fine on the Flash websites.

Love the pics here!

Thanks for the explanation, makes some sense. It may be more of a pain posting that way, but as long as we do get to see Cathy's photos, all is still good.

As fast as technology moves, we never seem to be quite satisfied with it.

Flash is dying a slow death and will be sundowned shortly. Don't waste bandwidth or $$ trying to make something work with Flash. HTML5 is the replacement... kinda, sorta.
