Default Road Trip 2017

Another Toner family road trip this year. Got off to a good start - I have a personal policy to stop at kids lemonade stands and I passed one on the way out of town. Have to encourage the entrepreneur spirit I say - three workers so each got a loonie....



Heading south - Canola crops are looking good


Stop in Red Deer for supper - Emily was excited to see the Donut Mill at Gasoline Alley. No wonder why, they are a popular stop for many.


I'd even read an article earlier this year how some guys started a business where they pick-up and deliver donuts from there to anywhere in Canada - and they had some very long distance requests.



Back on down the road...



With a new quirky co-pilot



Checked in for the night at High River - happy with the hotel. Heading westwards through the mountains tomorrow to Cranbrook, BC

Bomber Command museum of Canada - passed by here 10 years ago on the last day of a road trip. Got to stop in today.

82 million tons of limestone shear off the side of the mountain next to the town of Frank

90 people of the 600 in town perish in the next 90 seconds as debris falls 2.5 miles down

well that's a pain - why did the batch load links only show thumbnails?

Sorry - Hard to see that when viewing in an iPhone screen, but I'm not going to redo again
