We are on the way!
Our final night in Glacier was a celebration of life.
Our Buddy Ron had recently undergone Chemo and beat his Cancer. During his treatments and subsequent hair loss Kate and I had sent him this hat.
The quote was from Telly Savalas (remember Kojak?) hence the initials “TS"
It was always our plan that on the way to Alaska - once we were all together…. that Ron would be cured and this hat would no longer be needed.
So in the fire it went.
And just like that - we all looked forward to our Journey ahead.

This morning at 0830 we said goodbye to Glacier and headed north up US 93, cleared customs, and entered Canada.
6 Beautiful driving hours later we settled into Banff National Park in Banff, Alberta.
Along the way we had our first wildlife spotting - A mother bear and cubs. The honors for the first sighting go to Maxine. Surely the first of many more to follow.
This is the view from our campsite
Our 3 RV’s were joined for our visit here by a 4th - Rob and Pat - our good friends who we’ve spent time boon docking with
in the Arizona desert. Rob & Pat are Canadians and will be our local tour guides for the next 3 days.

The days are getting longer as we continue our trek North.
This photo was taken around 9pm.
Tomorrow we will start to explore the beautiful local area.
The town of Banff is incredibly beautiful and I can’t wait to get some photos to share with you.
For now - its almost 11pm and time for me to chill.
For now check out our map to see where we are.
Also - since I’m on limited bandwidth I’m using an offline blog editor to create the posts and then uploading them complete… so if the format looks
a bit different than usual - that is the reason why.
