Jun 18, 2012 - Entering Canada

We have Wifi at this campground so here we go.......... We crossed the Canadian border at Coutts, Alberta right over the line from Sweet Grass, MT. We met Trevor and Judy in Milk River. (They are friends we met in Florida that live in Canada). After an early lunch and catching up, both RV's traveled about a half an hour to Writing on Stone Provincial Park.

For the first time this year I got out of bed and said, "It is going to be a hot day today!" We went to the trailer and packed most of the things away and set of about 9:20 am. It was indeed, a glorious day....

May 19, 2008 - We're off and running.

This morning we left our favorite small town, White Sulphur Springs, Montana, and headed up Rt. 12 toward Great Falls and the Canadian border. It was a pleasant drive through the Montana mountains. We saw several deer along the highway and a number of picturesque small towns. The traffic on Interstate 15 was light and we were thinking that we would be settled at our first stop in a short time. All hopes were dashed when we approached the border. Only one lane was open for cars and RV's to make it through customs. This experience was an...
