Marlin, the girls and I spent this last week with family in Waterton. We camped at the Crandall Lake campground, which is much nicer than the one in town. Despite hauling my camera almost everywhere with me, I barely took any photos. I had done all the hikes before so taking all the scenic shots just didn't seem to happen and I wasn't into crowding around the wildlife we saw on the side of the road or in town just to get a few pictures. The bear you see below we saw during an early morning hike - it was just us and two joggers watching him graze.
We spent our time relaxing and hiking and some of us also did some boating, biking and fishing. I stuck to the hiking and relaxing. :) It was the kind of vacation where I don't feel like I need a vacation to recover from the vacation, if that makes sense.
The dogs did great and enjoyed all the hikes we took. Micah was kind enough to carry Coulee's share of the water to help spare her feet a bit. She didn't seem to mind the pack at all. I have to say having the "canine assist" (aka Coulee/Lacey pulling on the leash) up the hill was great, but my shins are a little sore from resisting the "canine assist" down the hill.
We saw a fair amount of wildlife - bears, deer, sheep and hundreds of ground squirrels. The dogs were most interested in the ground squirrels.
I am loving our trailer, but we'll need to cut back on our washroom use when we go out for longer periods. We filled our septic tank and I was very sad when I had to become a "commoner" and use the public washrooms. Thankfully it was only for the last day and a half.
