I spent a couple days at Canmore, Alberta, a rest stop on the way to Drumheller, on the eastern slopes of the Rockies, as I headed for the great plains.

It's just a short jaunt yesterday from Whispering Spruce Campground in Golden, BC, to Spring Creek RV Campground in Canmore, AB. It got me across most of the rest of the Rockies, so my trip to Drumheller wouldn't be too long. It's still in the Rockies, with nice tall mountains here in Canmore, quite suitable for their annual highland games.

I had no hint of the eclipse that was shouted about by every news agency in North America. I guess I could have planned my travels to witness the event, but I know my luck: Had I done so, it would have been cloudy, wherever I had gone.

Spring Creek RV Park

I stayed a couple nights at Spring Creek, in order to avoid driving all the way from Golden, BC, to Drumheller, AB, in one day. It was not a bad stop. The lanes and sites were reasonably sized, and it's still in the Canadian Rockies. However, the RV sites abut a rather seedy section of mobile homes, that severely detracted from the campground ambience.

I will definitely look elsewhere if I ever return.

From Canmore, I journeyed to the Dinosaur Trail RV Resort in Drumheller, AB, one of the stops I most anticipated on my tour.
