Another one of those places I wish we had more time to enjoy. This Bed & Breakfast was AMAZING! Brandy was an incredible hostess and breakfast was SO good!
Day 22 was drive from Golden to Calgary where we spent the night and hit a few shops before home (Ikea, Bath and Body Works etc)
Treasures found at Mt Stephen AB
Very quick lunch at Drumheller
(can't figure how to turn it on here, sorry)
We're almost home...
After all the landscape we saw over our trip ~ canyons, mountains, valleys, coastal highway, redwood forest... the prairies really are FLAT!!
But I do appreciate how much we can see...
"Land of the Living Skies"
And worth every memory!!
It was an amazing trip, so glad that we were able to do this kind of a trip at least once as a family! Not sure that we need to do a road trip that is this intense again for a long while!
It took A LOT of planning!
I knew we were doing this 2 years ahead of time so was able to get my travel book all in order... I really had a travel book!! Divided into sections ~ journal portion in the front then the last 1/2 for hotel reservations, phone numbers, addresses, hours of attractions, sights to see, etc. The front and back covers had two large envelopes inside for restaurant coupons, invoices and receipts.
We left the Trees of Mystery and drove up the coast to Crescent City to explore some tidal pools. CD was so excited!! She had been looking forward to this as much as meeting the Princesses at Disneyland. It was a bit chilly but so exciting to explore everything around the dark gritty sand and pools!
The girls found all kinds of things among the rocks and
little pools ~ crabs, shells, clams, fish, anemones, purple kelp &
We had more miles to make but what an amazing view!!
