British Columbia (again) – 22-24 August – Summer 2017

Liard Provincial Park Hot Springs, British Columbia

We drove straight to Liard River Provincial park.  We wanted to stay here on our way to Alaska but it was booked solid.  We were able to choose our site, any that were empty were up for grabs.  We chose Site 32 for $26 a night.  No services.   this is a well maintained park and very quiet.  On the way here, we saw so many buffalo, singles and then a whole herd.  Lots of babies and some are smaller and lighter coloured and some are bigger and darker but all still feeding off their moms.

Saying Goodbye to Glacier National Park

We left Glacier National Park about 10 in the morning and left for the border to enter Alberta.  There were two ways to go, so we took the longer route so we could stop at the Duty Free shop – WHICH THEY DIDN’T HAVE – just a gate and a guy.  He let us through with no problems and laughed at me when I said Where’s the Duty Free?  Continue reading “Alberta – 10 – 22 July – Summer 2017”
