So we made it finally back to Edmonton where my brohter in law is living. After a most exciting trip. We were at the Rockies, we visited the Alberta badlands and we saw a lot of lakes. The last one was Buffalo lake just east of Red Deer. There we met lot of birds.
And a lot of moskitos. The nearly ate me up.
And please do not believe the commercials of the insect repallant companies. They don't work.
This is the seond time we are visiting this site and again I realize that being in Western Canada only to see the Rockies is nice but you will miss a whole lot if you don't go and also see the part east of the Mountains.
So after having a lot of very beautiful days without any adverse events, we had some less than great experiences yesterday. We stayed at a nice place again: Blanket Creek PP (yet another lake), however the PP was really not as outstanding as deacdescr in the catalogue. Bad marketing.
But nice spot:
And then we realized that the furnace of the RV was not working. Thanks' to whoever is in charge for this we were not yet in the Rockies again but at a place where it got not that cold in the night. Anyway we all had cold feet this morning.
Tonight Banff. With heating. And a lot of company .
One of the biggest events in the Rockies is when you see a bear. We saw two of them today. And even two different ones. I would be able to tell you what kind of bears they were when I get home. However please leave a comment in case you know better than I do.
