I will have one more post from this area after today but it will have to wait until I have sufficient internet again. I have no idea where we will be tonight or even tomorrow night.

We've been in Donnelly, Alberta for about a week and a half and have done quite a bit of touring around both main roads and back roads. We've done some geocaching and photography, specially of old historic farm buildings. We were able to visit with my cousin Judith in the evenings when she was finished her work day and enjoyed our time with her.
Tomorrow we will begin heading to Fort McMurray to visit our daughter. I will have to peruse the maps today to select some possible overnight stops for us. I will have to figure out a route first as we don't want to get too close to Edmonton and the busier traffic. We've been enjoying the sparse traffic on the roads up here.

We have been at my cousin Judith's in Donnelly, Alberta for over a week. We've been out geocaching and exploring some backroads, taking a few photos along the way. We've had some nice days and some not so nice.
While we were still at Jasper, one day we drove down to Sunwapta Falls and walked down to the Lower Falls. The Upper Falls were very crowded but far fewer people ventured down to the Lower Falls which we had hoped to be the case. We took our lunch and ate down at the end of the trail and I think there were about 6 people that walked by as we were eating. Perfect! The photos will all be of the four lower falls unless stated otherwise.

Five kms up a gravel road beyond the Snaring River Campground is the old Moberly Homestead. This was part of a Metis settlement established in the 1880's. There isn't much left of most of it but the parks people have put some interpretive signs along the path to describe what life was like back in those days.
