July 6, 2007.
are staying in Radium Valley Vacation Resort-Resort, in Radium
Hot Springs. $51.00 FHU including cable but NO wifi, paved interior roads,
large sites with covered picnic tables. The negative with this park is the price
and NO wifi. We would much rather stay in the Canyon
RV-Park but they were full. We will stay in another park when we return
Hot Springs just because of the price and no wifi. However, if you like
resorts with pools and such this would be the place for you.
made a change of plans yesterday and decided that we would detour to Calgary and
see if we could take in a day or so of the Calgary Stampede. With that decision
made we headed to the northeast today to Radium
Hot Springs. Our plan is to move to Banff
tomorrow then start trying to find an RV-Park in the Calgary area.
we have an inside track on an RV-Park in Calgary but we have an air conditioner
that is acting up so we need to get into a repair shop that can replace a compressor.
It would be nice if the mechanic shop had an electrical connection that we could
use while they replace our air conditioner compressor. If we can find a place
like that we might not need to stay in a campground while in Calgary for the Stampede.
Our drive today was one of contrasts such as the contrast evident in this
picture. Our entire day was spent threading our way between and over towering
mountains. Notice that these mountains still have visible snow fields.
we constantly have views like this it is difficult to get pictures since we are
in the motorhome and places to pull over for photographs are few and far between.
is the Kootenay
River looking east with the Canadian
Rockies in the background. Folks I want to tell you that those are serious
mountains. Notice how muddy the river is.
This is the same Kootenay
River this time looking to the northeast. It is still muddy and the Canadian
Rocky Mountains are still totally awesome.
Until next time remember
how good life is.
