In the Canadian Rockies, everywhere you turn there is an amazing sight and amazing photo opportunities. Emerald Lake (pictured) combined all of the elements I enjoy - a majestic mountain, gorgeous, clear lake, evergreens and the summer flowers still in bloom in September. Linda McCormick Cockeysville Akron hotel invites you to snooze in a silo Akron, Ohio My family stayed at the unique Crowne Plaza Quaker Square.

It had been 25 years since my wife and I had visited the Canadian Rockies. Yet our memories were still as sharp and clear as a blast of cold Canadian air. Somehow, those mountains seemed more majestic, the skies more crystalline blue, the lakes more brilliantly turquoise than any other we had experienced. And so when Dorothy and I were planning a summer vacation to mark our 30th wedding anniversary, our thoughts turned toward Canada. As usual, different considerations drove us. I noted the favorable exchange rate and saw a great trip at a great bargain.

In the midst of the Canadian Rockies is one of the most lavishly appointed outhouses in North America.Throw rugs adorn its floor; maps and posters paper the ceiling and walls; a battery-powered lamp hangs over the seat; shelves on both sides of the door are stacked with magazines and "You are in Bear Country" pamphlets. There's even a guest book. Past patrons have filled it with plaudits, some in verse, for the outhouse's amenities and scenic location beside the Sunwapta River.You have to wonder, while sequestered in this most hospitable one-holer, where else in the world you could peek out a lavatory door at mountains and a milky-blue river while reciting, in regal luxury, mildly scatological odes composed by your predecessors.

A celebration of poetry Next weekend, Greenwich Village takes its creative persona up a notch as it plays host to the People's Poetry Gathering, a three-day celebration of the world's oral and written poetry. Those performing include U.S. poet laureate Stanley Kunitz and Robert Bly, along with calypso poetry "duelers," fisherman poets from the Pacific Northwest, a Korean P'ansori singer, Gypsy poets and musicians, and Cambodians who banter back and forth in poetry and song. Baltimoreans might be interested in the midnight graveyard reading of Edgar Allan Poe's work (by an undertaker/poet no less)

I live in Jarrettsville and took a vacation to the panhandle of Idaho and north into Canada in June. In our rented motor home, we traveled to Lake Louise in Canada's Banff National Park. From our campground in Lake Louise, we rented canoes for a peaceful ride on Lake Moraine. In a spectacular valley in the Canadian Rockies, the view from our canoes was of the towering peaks, clear water and blue skies. The Baltimore Sun welcomes submissions for "My Best Shot." Photos should be accompanied by a description of when and where you took the picture and your name, address and phone number.

In "Narrow Margin," Gene Hackman catches the train but misses the boat. There's no doubt that Hackman is a great film actor, but it's a shame he doesn't display more discrimination in picking his vehicles.Derived from a 1952 black-and-white film noir about a cop and a female witness (Charles McGraw and Marie Windsor) fleeing hit men on a transcontinental train, this movie lumbers along as if fueled by coal, not diesel. It's the little engine that couldn't.The original had one great advantage.

Based on the witless Royal Canadian Mountie character created by TV animation producer Jay Ward in the 1960s, "Dudley Do-Right" tries to stretch a seven-minute cartoon into a feature-length film -- with a seven-minute story.If there's a tale here worth telling, it's one of marketing over moviemaking: Get Brendan Fraser, the amiable hunk star of "George of the Jungle" (another Ward cartoon given the live-action treatment in 1997), and the crowd that made "George" a hit will do the same for "Dudley."
