The next day we got our highways mixed up and ended going 100 miles out of our way to Golden, AB. That is not good when you are paying over $4 per gallon for gas and the motorhome is averaging around 5 MPH. So we got more gas and got on the right road. Traveling between Lake Louise and Jasper is beautiful but we had a rainy day so we did not get to see as much. We left the park and ended up at Hinton, AB where we stayed at Walmart again and got gas, again. This was a quieter Walmart.
The next day, Dean wanted to change the oil and work on the rig a bit. So we broke off with the Poutney's for the night and stayed at Kakwa Recreation Area in a no fee campground outside of Grand Cache, BC. Rained all day but we truly enjoyed this little campground. No one was there and it was very quiet.
On Saturday we meet the Poutney's and the Moore's in Dawson Creek at the Walmart. We went to the famous start of the Alaska highway and took lots of pictures. Around 5:00, Sandy Murray and Keith Forrester joined us at the Walmart. Now we have 4 out of 5 rigs that are traveling to Alaska this summer. We are not sure where Gregg and Sally Schindel are at this point. We will meet up with them later.
Sunday we all took off and drove to a closed Provincial Park on the Prophet river. What a lovely place to stay. We practically had the campground to ourselves. And the weather was great. Took a long walk and had a nice fire.
