Into Alberta

The tunnel where I met the logging truck is on the right

Where the mountains meet the prairie. This area is unusual because there...

I left British Columbia behind today & crossed into Alberta at Crowsnest Pass. It was a beautiful drive – not as steep & winding as the last few days but still very scenic.

I didn’t realize what a strong tail-wind I had until I stopped at a view point & nearly lost the door when the wind grabbed it. I still had hold of the handle so I came out of the motorhome a lot faster than I expected – luckily, the electric step had time to come out.

The wind was from the west so became a strong side wind after I turned south to Waterton Lakes National Park so I had 50 km of pretty interesting driving, especially when I met a loaded logging truck in a quite narrow tunnel but we managed to miss each other.

The scenery here is stunning but it’s too cold & windy this afternoon to do anything except stay in my cosy motorhome. It’s forecast to be in the mid-20s for the next few days so I’ll get out & do some of the many walks tomorrow.
