Day 42, September 6th: bunting!

Greenhouse gas emissions (CO2eq): 2,335 kilos (still working on it though…)
Sigurðar saga fóts: 175/252



I have lots to post about here in the Canadian Rockies, but haven’t had a chance to get it all together yet. So this is just a shoutout to Emmhub and her famous passion for bunting, on which subject she has a most enlightening blogpost here. The pictures are from the Plain of Six Glaciers Teahouse.

Bunting detail!

Bunting in detail!

PS. If you’re wondering why I haven’t posted about my carbon emissions on the train yet, it’s because I can’t find information on this anywhere! This despite Viarail writing ‘A green choice / Un choix vert’ in big letters on the sides of their trains. Viarail offer such useless factoids as ‘While the transportation industry was responible [sic] for more than 26% of greenhouse gas emissions produced in Canada in 2005, VIA was responsible for only 0.03%’; the Canadian government tell me what they want it to be; Transport Canada give tantalisingly almost-useful figures. I’ll email Viarail. Meanwhile, Amtrak have sent me a holding reply and have since been very quiet. This stuff isn’t rocket science, guys…
