Tuesday morning we said our goodbyes, which is always hard to do. Anna was planning to go to Great Falls to get her yellow fever shot for her trip to Argentina. When she went to get her immunization record, she found out her yellow fever shot she got in 1999 has one more year to go. She was so happy to have a whole new day to stay home and work in the yard. And she didn't have to spend $103 either. However, her car was full of recycle, as they take their recycle to GF because there is no recycle in Conrad…yet! We crossed the border at Sweet Grass on the way to Calgary. We passed on Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump Monument because we’d been there before. Probably one of the most descriptive named monuments that we know of. Ask Di the story of it. Between the GPS, recommendations from Julie at the visitor center and Mickey’s map reading, we got lost in Calgary. Not really lost, just undecided I guess…undecided where to go next. We arrived in Banff mid afternoon and took our afternoon nap (Gary had been driving the whole way (7:30-3:00). We arrived at Tunnel Mountain Campground, Banff, where we stayed with 14th Streeters (and Jacob deBoer) in 1996. The views are still spectacular, even though cloudy and rainy, but no elk in the campground this time (however, elk dodo!). Banff is pricey but the Spaghetti Factory was an all-inclusive meal and it’s where we ate with Zach and Ren four years ago. Memories were everywhere! The only sadness of the day was listening to Boston lose on XM Radio!
