Red Rock Canyon to Bow Valley
Another blustery day. Lots of grey clouds spitting rain most of the day, although it cleared up around 4:00, about the time we were camping for the night.
We left Crandell in the morning and headed further in to the Red Rock Canyon. Very pretty in spite of the grey day – some bighorn sheep, elk, waterfalls, and red rocks.
We left Waterton Lakes and headed north on 6 to Pincher where we found wifi at the McDonalds and an incredibly good vegetable department at a Walmart! From there we continued through gorgeous rolling hills dotted with steer and windmills along with the occasional oil well. If possible, this area of Alberta seems even more vast than northern Montana.
We found Bow Valley PP with a lovely campsite on the banks of the Bow River. We are in the primitive sites with perhaps a half-dozen others. We didn’t venture down to the full hookups area to see how many were there.
