No pictures today. We slept in after a late night last night, then went out for lunch. We did a little shopping and back to watch the rodeo finals on TV. We were happy that we were at the stampede yesterday as today they had a huge rain storm with hail. We got nothing at the campground but a wee bit of sprinkles. One of the special things at this stamped was the retirement of Kelly Sutherland who is a chuck wagon driver. He had been with the sport for fifty years, first as an outrider then as a driver. There is a mandatory retirement at age 65. He did not make the finals of the chuck wagon races but he did win his heat in a photo finish which put a nice end to his career.

We are ready to move on to our next stop Canmore, Alberta (near Banff National Park)in the morning.
