Life in the Slow Lane - Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

Posted 10-01-2014 at 09:43 PM by silverlabs

I'm going to jump ahead for a few days. I opened the blog up to add our current trip and realized I hadn't finished the other one! I am so sorry to those that have been reading. I continue to have issues uploading photos. It appears all of my files are too big and I can't figure out how to resize them without going through a long and tedious process. I will get back and finish the trip in a few days, but for now I want to move ahead.

Anywho! Today we dusted off Lucille's traveling...

I am going to combine posts here because this is the week we left Lucille behind. We had a fabulous week with our girls. We spent the weekends in Vancouver and the weekdays in Whistler.

Making plans for hotels, etc., were a little bit different this time because we had to find greenspace around any hotel to allow for the dogs. The Westin Bayshore was our favorite. The room was comfortable. They brought dog beds, bowls, treats, and bags for each dog to make their stay and ours...

Life in the Slow Lane - Vancouver, BC Canada

Posted 08-17-2014 at 10:49 PM by silverlabs

Todays goal was to get to Vancouver, BC, and our Campground. Yes, we did drive though the Highway thru Hell.

We could see what they were talking about. It is extremely scenic. Much of it is elevated with steep drop offs on the side. The speed limits are very high, in our opinion. That is saying a lot considering how the hubs usually likes to drive. He might have done a little bit of wishful thinking as the cars whizzed past us. We decided the real problems arise in the winter...

Life in the Slow Lane - Kamloops, BC

The drive from Valemount was very scenic. We followed a river the whole way and there were many vistas to see. Turns out we were on the Yellowhead Highway and not the highway thru hell. It was a bit challenging because the speeds for regular cars was the highest we had seen. We maintained our 65mph.

Once we got set up in our campsite we went to explore the town. We were looking for a place to eat. The news had said the town had received an exceptional amount of rain and hadflooded...

Life in the Slow Lane - Jasper Day 2

Posted 08-17-2014 at 09:49 PM by silverlabs

This day we spent exploring Jasper National Park. We had a knew outlook on the road construction between Jasper and Valemount.

We don't have satellite so we have been at the mercy of cable or antennae offerings. It hasn't been bad and we landed on a show called Highway thru Hell. It is about big rig wrecker drivers who work along a certain highway in Canada.

Anywho, in one of the episodes they show the road construction crews working. They have two guys hanging...
