We took advantage of a local trappers cabin, and camped out in his “yard”. Man. The views. Worth millions here.

Had ourselves a hellroarer, called it a night after some good scotch and whiskey, and travelled home the next day.

Next trip in was august long weekend. Back into the Bruce valley. Determined to make the end of the valley this time, I’d enlisted several extra people and jeeps and trucks. All with the understanding that we were going to get into the lake.

But wait!! There was actually one before the august long. One near and dear to my heart. Our province had a bad run of government from 2015-19. Heavy, heavy socialists. They closed trails, banned 4x4ing in many traditional areas, and did what socialists do best. Nothing good. So, with a very good friend of mine, we got invited to escort Alberta Environment and Parks planners on existing trails, to get them open again.

Really nice pictures. When you were wheeling and crossing all those streams an rivers I was wondering about the environmentalists with that.

And my very good, and sorely missed friend and mentor, Andy Chiasson. Without his efforts, we would have no trails open in southern Alberta. Because of his ceaseless and tireless lobbying, we have trails open, and more to come. And passed away in January, due to stomach complications. Goddamn 2020. Rest In Peace old friend.
