As we made our way from Elko, British Columbia to Alberta we continued to have some smokey skies from the fires in British Columbia and the Banff area of Alberta. We headed through Fernie and over the Crowsnest Pass and into Alberta.
Then we continued north on Highway 22 which is one of our favorite roads with beautiful rolling hills, ranch country, and usually, a view of the Rockies. The smoke from the wildfires was still present therefore the air was not as clear as usual but it was still a beautiful drive.
The Chain Lakes Provincial Park is along Hwy 22 and provides an easy overnight spot or several nights if you choose. There are 3 loops with over 90 sites some with power and some with dry camping. There is a fee dump station on-site so bring your loonies (six of them).
