Day Trip to Aspen Crossing …


kingston trio / fast freight

Rose got this notion to do a Day Trip to Aspen Crossing, about an hours drive south of Calgary.

There’s lots of things to do at Aspen Crossing, but we were only interested in going for a bite at the John Diefenbaker Dining Car.

Lotsa room to park.

I parked just across the road.

Gift Shop and Garden Centre

The Diefenbaker Dining Car

All Aboard !! Katie and Rose

Nice.

We go for the breakfast buffet.

Very nice. Even BBQ Beef Ribs. 

Coulda had a Diefenburger though.
Next time … 

 Never saw a rooster … 
but spotted an Indian.

Not a real train.

Not real Gnomes.

 In the Gift Shop I seek out Pappy – my Consultant.
Pappy gives Free Advice – for a dollar.
I pay up.
Pappy says:
“Hard work will pay off eventually.
But goofing off works immediately.”
Thanks Pappy.

Just then the Train rolls in …

Looks pretty good. 

Meanwhile … 

… Rose is driving another car into the ground.

Homeward …
