Back in Alberta

Well the whirlwind tour has come to an end... Booooo!!!! We left Hood River Tuesday morning, since the wind forecast was non-existent, and we drove to Cranbrook where we had an awesome visit with Renee and Sheldon DeCosse ( They have a gorgeous piece of land overlooking the town of Cranbrook, and they also have the coolest little hobby farm!


Wednesday we continued on to Old Man Dam near Pincher Creek, and Todd and Chris kitesurfed the afternoon away at Windy Point.

Sheldon joined us on Thursday, and the 'Wolfpack of Three' (road trip joke!!) pumped up pretty much every kite they brought and had a great time at a different launch site on the north side of the reservoir.


Late last night we rolled into Canmore and this morning Todd and Chris headed back to Red Deer - they both have to work! Ick. Oh well. Better them than me!! Heh heh. I'm going to hang around in the mountains for the weekend and hopefully get out for a day or two more of hiking, if Mother Nature cooperates. We had fabulous weather the entire road trip and it's quite disappointing to have to come back to our crappy climate. But that's Alberta for you - I really shouldn't be surprised!!
