So it has been almost 9 months since we completed our trip but because of internet connections in Canada I wasn’t able to complete my blog. I’m now trying to get caught up and hopefully I will be able to remember everything!
We planned on doing our border crossing at Roosville, BC on Canada Day, July 1 in the middle of the Canadian three day long week-end and wondered how heavy the traffic would be at the border. The further north we traveled, the narrower the roads got and the traffic disappeared until we arrived at the border and we were the only ones in line. What a glorious sight. Five minutes and a few cursory questions later and our little convoy of 3 motorhomes was across. A nice painless experience. Then the scenic drive north through the beautiful Kooteney Rockies in British Columbia towards Banff, Alberta, where we had our first grizzly bear sighting. We were all staying at Tunnel Mountain Trailer Court which is the Banff National Park Service full hook-up campground. It was our base for 4 nights and we did our exploring from there.
