We met at Abraham Lake so they could try out boondocking. Well that and when we decided to go camping I couldn’t find a campground. Abraham Lake is a beautiful spot, and close to lots of places and things to do.
Ivan joined us as well, and we spent 6 days filled with food, beverage, sightseeing and hiking.
Jim and Janice had not been to Banff so I saw that as a necessity. Although we made it there and had a great lunch and some beers, but it took 45 minutes to find a parking spot. Our lovely Banff is getting a tad too busy for me.
Other highlights of the trip were a couple of stops at the Miners Cafe for pie (highly recommended) and a tour of the Brazeau Collieries Mine Site which is a historic Heritage Site. I can’t believe we haven't taken this tour before, it is one of the most interesting and complete tours I have been on.
It was a great time away with everyone and a fabulous start to the summer!
