May 18, 2016 - Small steps to our detination

Jun 19, 2006 - Hello Alberta!

We woke up to cloudy skies, again. It's supposed to be nicer to the north though, so maybe we can stay ahead of it. We headed out of Glacier Meadow RV Park and after stopping in Browning for fuel, it was north to the US/Canadian border, which we got through without any problems. They did take a little bundle of firewood that we had carried with us since Missouri. It was elm and they are having problems with some kind of elm beedle up here. No problem, we are having trouble finding campgrounds with firepits anyway. The part of Alberta which...
