Montana Lilly pads

  During the past weeks we have experienced a variety of weather patterns. We have had wind, rain, hail, hot weather, high humidity, and enough mosquitoes to last a lifetime. Central Alberta has been getting its share of rain this summer which means the bugs were out. But after we arrived in southern Alberta the weather turned hot and dry …

GoldSpringsCG-MilkRiver-Alberta-002

We headed south on Hwy 36 just east of Forestburg (on Hwy 53) to make our way to Milk River. The road and the drive were lovely and represented some wonderful Alberta prairies scenery. It took us through the Brooks area and Taber (don’t forget to get some corn). Further south of Taber was the Chin Lakes Campground along the …

Meeting Creek Alberta

Every year we try and meet up with family for an August long weekend camp out. We are pretty much guaranteed a terrific time, lots of chatting and laughing, lots of food, and an occasionally rainstorm. This year did not disappoint.  The camp out was held on a ball field in Meeting Creek, smack dab in the middle of the …

Edberg Alberta

We hung out in Alberta for a few weeks visiting family and some friends that Norm had not seen in many, many years. Part of the visit meant staying on the farm and having wonderful views of the large, beautiful prairie skies AND being fed like a king and queen. Thanks to family!!   Campground: Farms and ball fields – …

Lake Minnewanka

We drive to Canada several times a year and we like to change up our route every time but there are still only so many ways to get from one point to another. We love Banff and Jasper due to the sheer beauty but we detest the crowds. It’s a love/hate relationship but still one we endure and enjoy every …

Hells Gate State Park Marina Boat Tours

The drive from Weiser to Lewiston along Hwy 95 is one of our favorite drives.  From New Meadows to Whitebird the highway parallels the Little Salmon River and provides great views and wonderful rest areas (pull-offs) which are plentiful and spacious. These are great for a lunch break, a rest, or some boondocking.  Depending on the season there can be …

New Frontier RV Park Winnemucca Nevada

We left Washoe Lake State Park and drove highway 50 east to Highway 95 north to I-80 to Winnemucca. A nice peaceful drive along some high desert alkaline dry lake beds. Almost feels like Bonneville Flats in some areas. The drive also included lots of ground squirrels running across the road.  We don’t see that when we drive these roads …
