Temperature this morning was a brisk 36 degrees F(2 degrees C). A nice bright sunny day. We are driving back to Edmonton to stay at the Glowing Embers Campground again tonight and tomorrow. We passed by or through towns such as: Bezanson, Debolt, Crooked Creek, Sturgeon Heights, Calais, Valleyview, Fox Creek, Whitecourt, Mayerthorpe among others. We are in mostly farmland. Cattle and horse ranches and Canola, flax and wheat farms. We encountered some interesting trucks and vehicles on the road. Was surprised to see a tractor sitting crosswise on a trailer. On the Edmonton side of Mayerthorpe, we went under the Canadian National Railroad Rochfort Bridge Trestle. The trestle is the second longest wooden railway trestle in the world, is 2414 feet long and was built in 1914. The Sangudo sundial is a 21 ft elevator with sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rock boulders from this region to help mark the positions of the sun. As you can see from the photo, Cinder was attempting to help Eddi drive, but was not communicating very well.
