Oh, Canada

Warm, sunny weather and last minute preparations kept us in Helena, Mt. for a few days.

                  A trip to the Capitol Building was in order and made for an interesting day.

We shared some time and meals with another traveling friend, Don Hankins, with whom we've traveled in Mexico and on our West coast. He is also on his way to Alaska and we will see him along our way.

 The scenery around Helena is varied and beautiful with the road North to the border leading along Wolf Creek to Holter Dam and a nice BLM campsite.

The border crossing at Coutts, Ab. was uneventful with grey skies and steady rain accompanying us all day to Edmonton.

Heading West toward Grande Prairie we went under the Rochfort Bridge, the longest wooden railroad bridge in the world and saw our first Moose crossing signs.

One of our last memories of Alberta is the thirty-four foot high beaver monument we passed in Beaverlodge.
