Banff to Drumheller, AB, 182 miles, Sept 20, 2010

Yesterday, we did not even go outside the RV.  It was cold and rained most of the day.  Late in the afternoon, I did take this photo, first time we had seen some of the surrounding mountains all day.


Today more rain was in the forecast topped off with snow flurries tonight, we decided we needed to be somewhere else, so we left about 10 am this morning with our GPS programmed to Drumheller.

IMG_1987 At a stop light in Calgary, this consignment clothing store caught our eye.  Definitely unique.

This photo is for our daughter Megan who works at Home Depot, hey you could transfer to the store here in Calgary.IMG_4090

We found quite a bit of road construction today…


then…we came upon a sign that said road construction for the next 26 kilometers, but they offered a detour, so off we go on this detour.  This is the road we did not take.

Just before we arrived in Drumheller the road descended down into the river valley with badland type eroded sides.


IMG_4137We made a wrong turn in town so ended up making a U turn at a wide place on the road, Bob is getting so good at these about face moves!  Soon we arrived at the Dinosaur Trail RV Resort,  full hookup 50 amp site, $32, they have good internet for $3/day (TengoInternet).

Tomorrow we are headed to the Royal Tyrrell Museum!!
