September 3, 2007 – Travel in Alberta

Today’s travels took us into the province of Alberta. From Dawson Creek to Grand Prairie, we passed many farms and ranches and saw horses (many), sheep, and llamas.

And we found this guy on the side of the road at Beaverlodge. He is 15 foot high on a 19 foot log – he is BIG!!

In Grand Prairie we stopped at the visitor center to inquire about the roads south - all good roads.

From Grand Prairie south, we traveled into the Rocky Mountain foothills. The foothills (mountains to us easterners) were covered with very tall spruce and aspen. The fall is just starting here: trees are green and yellow; grasses are green and gold; wildflowers are going to seed – red and yellow leaves and white puff balls.

No matter what type of landscape we pass thru, it is beautiful.

We are camped at the Cache Campground which is part of the Robert Switzer Provincial Park – the only campers here. Everyone must have left after the holiday!!
