Day 41 - July 4 - Back to Canada

Just before sunrise, we spent a few minutes enjoying the northern lights from our Glacier KOA campsite. Then that morning we returned to Canada.

What a difference a day makes - yesterday soaring mountains - today prairie , prairie, prairie.

But some of it was quite lovely too.

We headed to Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park in the south west part of Alberta and the south-east part of Saskatchewan. 'Biiiig park', many campgrounds and we were really pleased with our site - although at first it seemed that somehow it was snowing again - but it was only cottonwood tree fluff - everywhere.

In fact suddenly, it was summer - real summer with hot temperatures and sitting by the lake etc. etc.

And since this is the heart of dark sky country we could actually leave our trailer flaps down and gaze at the stars (No northern lights though!) - for the 1st time on the trip other than at Badlands - sigh.
