This morning (Sunday) after breakfast and we held our own worship service along with our daily devotional before officially starting our day of travel. While the ladies were preparing to leave Stanley and I went to the campground office so we could access the internet. We left the campground about 10:00 this morning heading out route 2 and onto to U.S. 93 toward Canada. It is interesting that the route number stays the same even after we entered into British Columbia. We were delighted that we were ushered through customs without any problems. On our travel today we came upon a 250th year celebration of the explorer who was responsible for mapping out the area around Fort Steele, B.C. This was a big celebration in the old village of “Fort Steele” where they have old buildings and equipment from the old days. We stopped and walked through the old town and took pictures.
Our travels today took us 225 miles to a provincial Park approximately five miles south of Fairmont Hot Springs, B.C. arriving about 6:30 this evening. This campground is a primitive campground without hookups and of course no internet access. Stanley and I were able to assemble our portable grill in time to cook out hamburgers for supper at the camp site. We enjoyed sitting around a campfire after supper until almost dark and the mosquitoes got too bad.
Even though I am preparing this narrative while it is fresh on my mind I will have to post it to the blog later.
