Day Trip to Aspen Crossing …

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 …

 

Alberta Tornado …

4 Jun

“Darn dandelions … ” 

This photo is for real.

Seems like we’re getting more and more tornadoes up here as years go by. They used to be almost unheard of.
Yet …

Wikipedia: “The Pine Lake, Alberta tornado was a deadly tornado in central Alberta which occurred on July 14, 2000 and struck a campground and a trailer park. Twelve people were killed, making it the first deadly tornado in Canada since 1987, when an F4 tornado killed 27 people in Edmonton Alberta and injured 300+”

 

 

This was classed as a Category One – the lowest rating – and caused only minimal damage.

Now upgraded to F2 they say …

 

 

 

Memorial …
