Life in the slow Lane - Jasper National Park, Alberta, CA

Posted 08-16-2014 at 10:45 PM by silverlabs

Our itinerary routed us through the Ice Fields Parkway en route to Jasper National Forest. We started out early because we didn't know what the roads would be like and how long it would really take us to get there.

The Icefields Parkway did not disappoint! We stopped in several places to take pictures. I do wish I could get them to post! We passed seven, I think, glaciers along the way. The roads were good and the inclines were not too steep for our TV and Lucille followed behind...

Life in the Slow Lane - Canmore/Banff, Alberta, CA

The drive to Banff, and our lodgings at Canmore, was only about an hour away so we didnít plan on an early start to our day. We decided to take advantage of the awesome off leash area and take the dogs for a really long walk/scamper.

The greenspace spans several miles so it was an easy pleasant walk. We were surrounded by fellow campers and locals all enjoying that great environment with their dogs all off leash. Darci liked some dogs, made a passing nod at some, and some she ignored...

Life in the Slow Lane - Calgary/Cochrane, Alberta, CA

Posted 08-10-2014 at 08:19 PM by silverlabs

Itís border crossing day!! Today we got an early start because we didnít know what we would face when we got to the border. Let me explainÖ.

First off, we are crossing with two dogs. I had all of their paperwork in order. One dog, Darci, likes to bark at people that walk up to the car or walk past it so we (actually me) were really worried that she might not behave herself and annoy the border agent.

Secondly, we had heard all sorts of stories about border crossings...

Life in the Slow Lane - Great Falls, MT

Posted 08-10-2014 at 07:31 PM by silverlabs

I am still in catch up mode, unfortunately. I will post pics when I get to a place that has free WIFI that actually works. I think pics may be too costly for my intíl data package on the mobile hotspot.

We started out the day with a side trip. We originally planned to drive from Billings to Great Falls, which is only about 3 hours. The hubs had wanted to go to a boot store all along and I thought it was in Billings. It is in Bozeman. It was only an extra 1.5 hours so we headed...
