Ok, I jest.
But anytime you are driving along and all of the sudden come to a stop for a freight train, you’ve experienced it:
The Canadian Rockies Mandatory Rest Stop.
Yes, they happen.
Yes, you could be sitting for 10 minutes or more.
Just relax, get out and stretch and enjoy the break. Unfortunately for me, this picture was just before Canmore (coming from Calgary) on the way to Banff. Vacation hadn’t quite started yet!
And remember kids, “Idling Pollutes. Please don’t idle your engine. Turn it off!” Also, don’t put large cigarettes into your tail pipe as the picture shows. It is really not good for your car.
