Some pictures of our season....

First trip out, last week of may. Waterton park.









It was snowing and raining almost all week, but we had been cooped up far too long.

Next trip we went to Elkwater, Cypress Hills. It rained. lots.







Then it was back to Waterton for a really windy week.





Then to Jasper for a week. First time we had ever been there, and we really enjoyed it. A very large campground with nearly 800 sites in all(most are dry)



Surprisingly, this was our closest neighbour!!! It was ok though, they were not too loud.



Columbia Icefields...



Then we had a 2 week trip to the British Columbia coast. Didn't take too many pictures for some reason. We went to Whistler for a week and did some downhill mountain biking which was incredible. Had a black bear cross a hiking path right in front of us. Still fairly rainy. Then we went out to Vancouver Island to visit family. The ferry sure wasn't cheap, but no more expensive than staying at a bed and breakfast.

One way!






But when we got to our campsite it was worth it....



We ended up with a waterfront motorhome site (hook ups on opposite side so we had to drive in forward to reach. As you can see, I was unable to unhook and get my truck out of there.



Having the door on the south side worked out well actually. Here are some shots of our view...









I spent a lot of time drinking coffee, sitting in my chair just watching the harbour traffic. Quite enjoyable.

Then we headed home, stopping in Golden for some more downhill mountain biking. Then back home, before our last trip, another 2 weeks in Waterton. We were able to visit family and do lots of hiking while we were there.







Any guesses where she might be pulling me?


To the lake! She loves swimming so much....


With kids back in school the waterpark was deserted....




Speaking of hot dogs...




















Another great year. Ended up with 57 nights, bringing our 3 year total to 180. Season was short, but we certainly enjoyed it. Pink stuff is in, fridge and pantry are empty. Until spring, our Seville is quietly waiting.

Way Cool!! Some of your destinations are on our bucket list, so thanks for the preview. We leave Wednesday for our last trip of the season (3 weeks weather permitting?)to southwestern Colorado to see the changing aspen leaves, and southeastern Utah to hike Indian ruins. Your pictures make me want to leave today!
