This year we flew to Calgary and rented a car for a week.  We took it easy, staying 2 nights at Brooks, 2 nights at Drumheller, 2 nights at Red Deer, and one night at Rocky Mountain House.

We were a little disappointed with the weather because we had 2-3 days with some rain - and on the last day it was very cold with a strong wind.

Some of the highlights I'll remember are:

the gravel road to the Finnigan's Ferry

farms - canola, beef cattle, hay - with electric poles and oil pumps on them.

long straight roads as far as we could see


the bad lands

the Brooks Aquaduct

the lovely Red Deer city hall garden

the never ending cars at the Brooks Tim Horton's
