Kananaskis for the Summer

I can't believe it is June 18th already!  We are back working in Kananaskis for the summer.  The weather so far has not been great.  We are both getting back into the routine of working, me at the store and Doug doing maintenance.  We are enjoying being back in the mountains!  New this year, we both got kayaks😍😎  I have been out in mine 2 times, Doug 1 time in his.  Now if the weather gets better we can take them out more often.  We both really enjoy kayaking!!  Bear 139 is back and she has 2 cubs, her first.  She is really causing problems in the campground as her and her cubs won't leave.  They had to close loop A and possible closure in loop B!  She is just too used to people.  Her cubs are so adorable, her and the cubs walked right through the compound where we are!  The next day she was laying right behind our unit having a nap!  Hopefully she will get the message and leave the campground!😔

Mesa, Arizona TowerPoint Resort

February 23rd,

I can't belive we are nearing the end of February!!  We have been here for 3 months, boy does time ever fly!!  It has been very enjoyable to stay in one place for the winter, especially in a resort that offers so many activities, etc.!!  The weather has been quite nice.  We had a few cold snaps(not like back home though)!  I made a pound puppy out of my Blue Fox fur coat, it was quite a challenge as I had to sew it all by hand!  I had a lot of help from Linda here at the resort, she has made a lot of teddy bears and such.  I love the way he turned out and he is going to be perched on my bed!!  I am now in the process of making a Teddy Bear!  I also used the long arm quilting machine on my quilt.  That was fun!!  In January we had a visit from Alyssa, Paige and Katie, they had a great time and we had a lot of fun with them.  They were with us for a week.  We also had a visit from brother Herman and niece Elice.  They stayed for a couple of days, it was nice to see them!  Herman will be back in March with Annette for another visit!  We are in festival week here at the resort and they have so much going on!!  The theme this year is USA day and Canada day!!  Lots of fun to be had by all!!  They have .25 cent beer and wine for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, gotta love it!!!!

Almost Done!!

I can't believe that the summer is almost over, it has gone so fast!  We have had a great summer!  The weather has been awesome, although we could use some rain now to ease the fire situation!  Doug has enjoyed doing maintenance, and I have enjoyed working in the store.
We have had Fridays and Saturdays off this year and were able to see family more.  In July we were able to go to Jess(my nephew) and Tanya's wedding which was in Edson.  We were so happy to be able to attend!!  Also, Aug. 11th we went to Phantom of the Opera, which was sooooo excellent!!
It is starting to wind down and not be so busy out here.  I am looking forward to spending some time with family before we head down to Arizona for the winter.  This year we booked Tower Point Resort in Mesa, Arizona.  We will stay put for 4 months at the resort.  I look forward to not driving so much and just doing day trips from Mesa!
My handsome Nephew Jess and his beautiful bride Tanya!

Heyburn Riverside R.V. Park in Idaho

Last night we stayed overnight at a flying J in Wells, Nevada.  Today we drove to Heyburn, Idaho and are staying at Heyburn Riverside R.V. Park.  This park is on the Snake River.  We will be staying here for 3 nights.  Then we make the push to Alberta.  We are looking forward to getting back and seeing the kid's and grandkid's, we missed them a lot!!

Cathedral Gorge State Park, Nevada

We spent 3 nights at Cathedral Gorge State Park in Nevada.  This is a very nice campground and a very unique area.  We did a couple of hikes while we were here.  We walked to the slot canyons and explored the caves, then did the 1.5 mile hike, Eagle Point Trail.  What a spectacular view from there! The next day we did Hawk's Ridge Trail which was 5 miles.  This was also a trail with beautiful views.  Low and behold we saw a hawk circling above us.  We really enjoyed this area, it is very beautiful!!

Vegas to Bauer Canyon RV Park Utah

Yesterday we drove from Vegas to Bauer Canyon Ranch RV Park, our next stop on our journey.  We had a very long day due to taking highway 9 to Zion Park and being turned back because we were to long.(They should have had a sign in La Verkin stating this)  On our way back down we got the signal in our truck that we had a tire that was low.  By the time we got back into La Verkin our tire was flat.  Doug had to change it and this took about an hour.  We got back on the road and pulled into Bauer Canyon about 8:30PM.  They had a sign on the door stating our spot.  We got all set up and relaxed for the rest of the evening.  Today we went to Zion National Park and did some walking around and just taking in the beauty around us!  Zion is a spectacular park, it's beauty just takes my breath away!  We had an awesome day!
