Calgary West Campground
Last night the four of us talked about whether to stay another day or not in Fort Macleod.
Fort Macleod was less than a mile away and we figured we could go tour it and be back before 11 am checkout.
Monday through Friday they are open from 9-5. So what time do you figure they open on Saturday? We'd have to wait until June.
We would have enjoyed the North West Mounted Police.
We headed back to pick up the fifth wheels.
The winds were blowing but the sun was shining. I noticed that there were permanent signs warning of the winds along the highway.
Everyone seems so friendly and happy. Even this barn is happy.
There was some construction around Calgary. Let's just say we weren't familiar with the way the traffic patterns go. I had Bill turning before he should have. I think the meters and kilometers are messing me up.
We eventually arrived at Calgary West RV Park. We were given side by side sites, but were instructed incorrectly on how to enter the sites.
Next door to the park is the Canada Olympic Park. It was early and we had time to go check it out.
We toured Canada's Sports Hall of Fame.
The first thing we saw was this statue of Wayne Gretsky.
It took a while before we started pushing the interactive buttons.
I don't think I'd be a candidate for the rowing team.
Carlena is a natural athlete.
This communication phone was invented in Winnipeg for WW1.
I thought the Penguin fans out there would enjoy Mario Lemieux.
Bill really got into it.
Look at that form.
Bill is landing after a record long jump.
It looks easy, but it isn't.
These items were all encased in the floor. I don't think I could do the snowboarding.
I was amazed that this fencing outfit wouldn't stop a sword.
When we exited the Hall of Fame we walked across the street.
There was a beautiful ice rink.
We watched them play and before you knew it, we were into the game.
We found the game seemed much more exciting when we sat behind the players.
The players were all good sports when the game was over.
Do you think we're having fun?
No, it doesn't take two to pump diesel, but I thought you'd appreciate the posted prices. Even getting fuel was an adventure.
Tomorrow is Banff.
