Jun 16, 2017 - Cowboy trail and Crowsnest Pass

Was a long drive day but was well worth the trip. An area of wild beauty and haunting legends,lots of former coal-mining towns and scenic Hwy 3.

Aug 30, 2009 - From Pincher Creek through Calgary to Drumheller

From Pincher Creek we drove to Calgary, and visited with Bob and Erika for part of the afternoon.

There we relaxed for a couple of days, and Malcolm did a bit more work on his paper.

Jul 5, 2009 - Pincher Creek, Alberta

7/5 – 7/7 Thirty-three miles further on PH3 brought us to Windy Point Campground in Pincher Creek. We had a beautiful campsite overlooking the Oldman River Reservoir. Although this area is considered the windiest in Alberta (the campground is a favorite with wind surfers) it was a great spot. It was also a convenient spot to visit a number of attractions. Our first stop was Waterton Lakes National Park. This park sits right at the base of the Canadian Rockies. It was a cloudy and rainy day for our visit but it was still a beautiful spot. We...
