I know, how is it possible that we can be on vacation when we are already travelling full time…. Well after finishing up the Pincher Creek photography workshop last week, we celebrated Canada Day weekend at Waterton Lakes National Park and then on Sunday we met up with Jay’s parents in Canmore. We are tagging along on Jay’s parents vacation as they escape the Phoenix heat to enjoy the cool beauty of the Canadian Rockies. We have been spending the week with them doing touristy things and enjoying a nicer version of travel than what we are accustomed to; one which comes with showers, beds, and restaurant meals.
Hours volunteered: 28 hours (combined) at the photography workshop with the kids at the Napi Friendship Association in Pincher Creek
States & Provinces: 1 Province, Alberta: Waterton, Canmore, Jasper
Budget: a bit under
People Visited: Tony and Barbara Bloom, Cindi and Morgan Holt
Nights under the stars: 4; 1 near Fort MacLeod in a horrible mosquito haze; 3 glorious nights at Belly River Campground in Waterton Lakes National Park
Best meal: All our restaurant meals with the Holts have been excellent, last night was particularly worth mentioning – we dined at Becker’s, just a short walk from where we are staying with a table overlooking the Athabasca River
Best beer: Grizzly Paw Stout in Canmore Alberta
