Join Doug for a trip of a lifetime To the Canadian Rockies!

This is a trip for gardeners and non-gardeners alike. The Canadian Rockies is one of the most beautiful areas in the world. Gardeners will love Butchart Gardens and others we will discover. The trip visits Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna, Lake Louise, Columbia Icefield, Banff and more. We're staying in some of the most luxurious hotels, take a gondala ride and explore the majesty of Banff. We're travelling from July 10th through July 19th, 2016. Here are all the details, sign up soon, like all my other trips, it's going to sell out. I will only take a maximum of 44 people, that way we get to know each other. I've made many good friends as we've enjoyed traveling together. This is the easiest way to travel as my friends from Collette provide us a local guide who cares for us through the whole trip. Book soon for a discount as I'm sure it will sell out. Call me at 412-965-3278 to talk about the trip.

Check out this beautiful picture of Butchart Gardens.
