  1. Roughing it in the Rockies
    I always enjoyed reading Trailer Life until August 2011. I am very dissappointed in your coverage “Roughing it in the Rockies” The first picture shows Morraine Lake in Banff National Park, Canada. Morraine Lake is the most pictured lake in Canada and used to be on the $20 (CDN $) bill. There is nothing about the Canadia Rockies in the entire article. So, please don’t use pictures that have no connection to what you print. I am sure you could have used a beautiful scenery picture for any of the Staates covered in the articles. There are a lot of georgeos places in the various areas.
