Oh Canada! 2013 Trip – Tuesday’s Gone Again

Not much happened on this day as it was just a travel day for us. Since Highway 1 was still closed due to washed out bridges, our 1.5 hour trip back to Calgary turned into a 5.5 hour round about trip back across unknown roads to get us to the airport.

Well we’re doing things a bit differently this year in several aspects: – I’m writing this trip report up postmortem since we didn’t have internet access during most of the trip. So there’s a good chance I’m going to get some places out of order, not that you care, you’re just here for the pretty pictures 😆 – Due to my wife’s condition (Baby 1 cooking) and time constraints, we did a fly and drive trip this year.
