Wednesday June 13th found us headed for Calgary.

We met Sean early in the morning and gave him a tour of the trailer as he hadn't seen it yet.

Phil, who rents the apartment to Sean, joined us for coffee and some tips on places to visit while in the area. Cypress Hills was high on his recommendation list.

Then it was a short walk over to Cora's for breakfast.

Calgary has made it very easy to get around by foot or bike, which Sean really likes.

We left about 10 headed south and east to visit the park Phil recommended. Cypress Hills is an  inter-provincial park on the Alberta, Saskatchewan border. It is a unique environment for this prairie province and also full of early Canadian history which I enjoy.

Although our visit was short as Sean has students to coach and a trip to Quebec this coming weekend to organize, it was still a delight to have some time together. Next year we will organize our dates better so we can do some camping together. Maybe we need to be thinking northern BC for 2019.
