The World's biggest truck

North Americans like to supersize everything! Here's a photo of Jim with the world's largest truck which we drove past on the way home from Fernie at the weekend. You can just about make out all 6ft 4in of Jim standing by the front wheel!

After the weekend, we've all returned to the village with 'Fernie Fever' and our friend Mark has already booked us in to a B&B (one with a hot tub this time!) for the weekend after next - Fingers crossed I'll be allowed on the slopes this time, I've got to be checked over by a physio to make sure everything is where it's supposed to be after the ding on Friday!

This weekend I'm off to the Cypress Hills, near Hidden Valley, for a free snowshoeing excursion. I'm rather hoping to have some good wildlife photos to share afterwards. They have coyotes, wolves, cougars, skunks, elk and moose in the area. So far the most exciting thing I've spotted was three coyote running across the TransCan in front of the car. We always seem to find out we have just missed an enormous moose or arrive somewhere the day after a wolf walked across the ski slopes...
