In Sask. we planned to meet our married children Josh and Rebecca with his parents who were travelling home from a family gathering in Alberta. It gave us a little time to stretch and say good by to them,because after all it would be 2 weeks before we would be seeing our little grandson again!
Arriving at the first campsite at Chin Lake Alberta about 8 pm. This was a self check in campground. There were signs on the grass saying not to set up tents on the grass. But there was no one to ask why not and it looked so much more appealing to set them up on the grass instead the hard gravel and we couldn't see any harm in it. But we were in for a surprise when during the night the automatic,built-in lawn sprinklers went off! We were up in a flash, that explained why no tents on the grass. In the morning we had a few good chuckles and had learned another little something. Why do we want our children to obey???
A family picture before we left the next morning.
After driving an hour or so the next day we began to see the mountains. This was exciting as the children had never seen the mountains before. That day we drove into Montana and spent the rest of the day in the Glacier National Park. Here we had a picnic lunch,hiked some trails and saw some lovely water falls and lakes. The color of the lakes was so pure and clear. We drove right next to the snow and got to touch some of it! The rest of the pictures are taken in Glacier. That night we stayed at a campground where there were bears around so we took extra caution by packing away ALL our food and not leaving any table scraps around for them to be attracted to.
