Jay and I mused last night about how there is food in our cooler that has gone from Canada to the U.S. to Canada again. It really hasn’t been that long since we were visiting friends in Ontario. This week we crossed into British Columbia from Montana, enjoying lots of amazing bike trails along the route. Now we are in Pincher Creek, Alberta volunteering all week through the Muskoka Foundation teaching photography to youth at the Napi Friendship Center (an organization serving the Piikani First Nation).
Hours volunteered: 14 hours (combined) or even more if you count all the prep and planning we’ve been doing for the photography workshop with the kids at the Napi Friendship Association in Pincher Creek
States & Provinces: 1 State, 2 Provinces
Montana: Missoula, Whitefish; British Columbia: Fernie; Alberta: Crowsnest Pass, Beaver Mines, Pincher Creek
Budget: Not sure, but probably slightly over — we have been keeping costs down with more camping and cooking, but gas and most everything else is more expensive in Canada
People Visited: Doug and Karen Manzer
Nights under the stars: 7: Lolo National Forest, Bitterroot National Forest, Kootenai National Forest, off Coal Creek Road in Fernie, Beaver Mines Recreation Area
