1.Canadians in general are very friendly and helpful, if asked for information about locations or history (although in Calgary there is NOT MUCH history left... i mean places, older than 5-10 years)! Anyway, as i got to know... there have been people asking park wardens about getting the water so blue (the lake on the left, hehe) , and well, i mean these guys already have a tough job keeping everything in shape and order, considering the legions of tourists invading the parks every day in the summer... you know what I mean, give them a break ;-)))))))
2.When hiking, greet the people you meet! They do, so why shouldn´t you? And if they don´t... well, then they are usually tourists!
