On The Road Again – To Denali

Posted on Updated on

We got a late start today. One camper had trouble getting their camper on their truck and we can’t leave until EVERYONE leaves!

The drive to Denali National Park was an easy one today. Dale was tired after getting up and having coffee ready at 6 when everyone else slept in!

The views were gorgeous as only a wild land can be. Take a gander!

Dale is off riding the bus into the park and I am sure he will haves lots of photo’s at www.rvecafe.com

I have a free day. There is about a block of little shops (if that many). Our RV park is right behind them. Between the mountains, river, road and shops, not much space to put a bunch of RV’s!

The day we arrived here (yesterday) the planned event was at The Cabin. Homestyle dinner and a show. What fun we had. The waiters and waitresses were all in the show and they had things going on all through dinner.

This is my table. In the next photo we show you how we let the waiter Charles know we need more food. Yep. Napkins in the air and swing those puppies around.

more food

Charles our waiter, is from Scottsdale, AZ. He comes up here to perform. He plays the piano, guitar and sings. Pretty funny guy too.

Being Tourists

Posted on Updated on

On Monday, we became Joe tourist. Cameras out and taking in the sights. We left our campground early to get on the road to Banff and Lake Louise. Here’s our “tourist photo’s!

These photo’s are just traveling down the road into the Canadian Rocky Mountains. All majestic views.

Us in front of the Banff sign. Had a hard time getting the camera set on the car and we used the timer. Not a great shot!

DSC00374I took this photo because of the cross walk. I have never seen this in action before but when the light is red for traffic, all traffic stops, and one can cross the street 6 different ways and one of those ways is diagonally across the street – corner to corner.

We went to a jewelry store to exchange US dollars for Canadian. We were told “the best exchange in town.” They actually gave us better rates than our bank which told us they use the “retail” value.

We were hungry by the time we got to Lake Louise. All restaurants were busy and we looked around and found one that wasn’t. Red flag. I had a burger and FF and couldn’t eat the hamburger. Dale had a chicken sandwich and FF and he choked it down. In the end we paid CA $42.00 for lunch. Don’t recommend the place at all. But…..when we walked up to the lake….WOW!

Before we got to the boardwalk at the lake, 3 bus loads of people descended. It was hard to get a photo without someone else in it!

We had a wonderful day together – the 3 of us. Good walks, beautiful scenery. Life is really GOOD!  We truly saw evidence of God our creator.
