We did not have the time - nor easily accessible internet access - to write or read blogs while we were in Alberta. We have yet to catch up on blogs we missed during that time. We'll work on catching up soon.
|The day following our arrival in Edmonton, I washed our truck.|
|Our reason for being there was to move the contents of this house......|
|.....into this 26' trailer.|
|We drive through this town on the way to Two Hills.|
|At the farm, we checked things out before going for our first visit.|
|The long term care facility|
|The gathering before our sit down dinner.|
|Great meal served!|
|Gifts were exchanged and opened!|
|A family group shot - Mary (Jeanette's mom) daughter Ginette, Jeanette, son Deni, and John (Jeanette's dad).|
|Arriving back in Edmonton on Sunday evening.|
|Looking good. Deni is inspecting.|
|My nephew Justin came by to lend a hand too.|
|My middle brother's oldest son Justin not only lent a hand at cleaning, he dropped by Deni's home for a visit.|
|Early morning daylight - two hours into our drive back.|
|Taken in Jasper National Park.|
|A little break to stretch out in the Rocky Mountains.|
|Just west of Jasper National Park is the sign that welcomes drivers to the Province of British Columbia.|
|There was one big snowfall in this area while we were in Edmonton.|
|Ice from roadside waterfalls. Very pretty!|
|Taken on the famous Coquihalla high mountain freeway.|
So, 14 hours after beginning this long drive, we arrived home safe and sound. That was one of the quickest 5 day turnarounds we've ever driven.....with a large and heavy load to booth!
During our drive out, while in Alberta, and on our return trip, the winter temperatures were quite favourable. The temperatures hovered close to freezing. We dodged the usual bone numbing cold temperatures. Bonus!
Thanks for dropping by.
