Southern Alberta / Saskatchewan Vacation

So the furthest we made it in our Saskatchewan trip is to Cyprus Hills and it was amazing! Too bad we didn’t have more time to venture into Saskatchewan further. We have some great pictures and some not so great pictures to share.

We started out in Balzac Ab. Got a late start leaving home so decided to meet up with some family at the “local” campground. Pretty nice Campground just off the highway. It had rained so much that there were puddles everywhere. We did start a fire but then it started raining again.

The next day we proceeded South and East. We went through a little town called Bow Island, stopped at there visitor center and took these pictures. Who would have thought a bean meant so much 🙂

Later that day we made it to Writing on Stone it was amazing. We’re driving on flat land then all of a sudden there’s Hoodoos everywhere! You can walk up to the Visitor Center through the Hoodoos. There’s also a river and small beach. We all enjoyed the hike even my dog Missy!

A couple days later we drove to Cyprus Hills Elk Water on the Alberta side. Really nice campground and park for the kids. We went to a nearby beach for a walk and stopped for some ice cream.

Finally made it to our destination Cyprus Hills Maple Creek on the Saskatchewan side. Our site was a little cramped but all in all it was a pretty nice place to camp. Unlimited wood but you weren’t allowed to take it away from the camping area. Nice beach nearby.

As we headed back home we camped at Dinosaur Provincial Park by Brooks. It was also surrounded by the Bad Lands. We had a couple rattle snakes in our site and unfortunately ran into a tree 🙁 It was a little tight.

While camping there we went to Fort Walsh. Our camping neighbors told us to take a shortcut…wasn’t really a short cut but a cow path 🙂 We drove this road for almost an hour running into deep puddles, cows and Texas gates. We eventually made it. When we left Fort Walsh we took the highway home…much better.

We finished our vacation at Pintys Campground in Drumheller. This campground is very nice owned by a very nice family. There’s no website. Sorry. I do have pictures. So just a cute little office on there land and lots of really nice camping.

While we were staying at Pintys we ran into Drumheller to do a couple things.

Stopped at the local grocery store, Fresen Bros. for groceries and noticed this very cool Dinosaur crashing through the wall!

  1. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
