Goodbye Smoky Lake, ( We never saw your lake) again 4+ hours of driving..Good old Ian !

Meer cat / Prairie dog free lunch at Niton Motel & restaurant , still in Alberta.
We tried "Poutine" which it appears is, French fries, sprinkled with Mozarella cheese & drowned in beef gravy.
Nothing like taking a highly calorific food & loading on extra fat!

The foods in the mini mart are labelled both in english & french..Avec Marmite !

Avec Prairie dog?

The eagerly awaited Brown cabin at the " Old Entrance " of Jasper state park..4 heavenly nights in one abode!

Not a bad view from our door?

They offer horse riding here, as well as some intersting hikes.

After a long drive, we put our feet up on our very own porch.

Thought I'd incinerate some steaks for dinner ..Yum

As the sun sets over the beautiful mountains, Ian leaps around the property Dongle in hand ( Ooh err Mrs ) trying to pick up a wi-fi signal.. If he succeeds you will be reading this sooner rather than later!

Anyhoo an exciting day tomorrow, we plan a rafting trip on the Abasanthe river.

Goodnight dear reader..keep yer hand on yer Dongle xxxx
