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 …

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 …

Downtown Canmore Alberta on a cloudy day

We drive to Canada frequently so we like to  switch things up a bit and take different routes and stay at different campgrounds along the way. Driving over the Rockies at the southern most point in Canada, via Crowsnest Pass, is the easiest with respect to both traffic and with elevation gain/descent. But once in a while we like to …

Our hiking has vanished as we soak in the atmosphere and good times.   Oh well…we are having a terrific time and experiencing wonderful weather. Some of the things we …
