Traveling through the deserted lunar landscape of the Craters of the Moon in 100-degree weather was a unique experience.
We left Canada and its magnificent mountains behind and headed to the mountains of Montana. Following Hwy 2 south toward Babb, MT, we passed the UNESCO World Heritage Site and home of the museum of Blackfoot Indian culture, Head-smashed-in, in Buffalo Jump, CA, and made a mental note to come back and visit one day. Once again, we thought we’d seen the best of the mountain views, but were pleasantly surprised to take in the beauty of Montana’s best: Glacier National Park and Going-to-the-Sun Road.Continue reading “Glacier National Park, Montana”
The “kids” and I are hanging out by the picnic table in the cool but pleasant evening at Wabasso campground, surrounded by lots of evergreens, many of them charred, bearing the aftermath of the recent forest fires. Right now, the fire potential is low, so we are in the clear to warm up by a bonfire tonight.Continue reading “Jasper, Canada”
We took a full day to explore Banff area and we LOVED it! We were a bit limited on activities because we had the dogs with us but we still got to see quite a bit.
We didn’t want to miss out on the famed Lake Louise while visiting Banff, so we headed out mid-day to explore it. As we approached our destination, lit road signs announced the parking lot at Lake Louise was full. We drove on, regardless. When the chateau appeared in sight, we were waved around and out of there by park employees. Bummer.Continue reading “Oh, so blue! Lake Louise and Lake Moraine”
Gull Lake is a very small and peaceful town in the middle of nowhere, Saskatchewan, Canada. Settled comfortably in a small RV park, we set to explore the surrounding area. The RV park owner advised us to drive to Maple Creek, another small town about an hour down the road, and have ice cream at the local Grotto Gardens Country Market. We loaded up the dogs in Jane (our CR-V) and cruised down Hwy 21 toward sweet treats.Continue reading “Local Saskatchewan Treats”
