Route Transcanadienne 


The Fry Family Quartet is 977 kilometers into our Canadian road trip en route to Nebraska. Day one took us through Hope and Salmon Arm as we skirted BC’s wildfires before setting up camp in Sicamous. Despite the smokey haze, the scenery was breathtaking, especially when we entered the Canadian Rockies. We spent our second night in Banff, which we all agree is one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever been. This morning, we soaked for a few hours in Banff’s Upper Hot Springs. The kids told me the water was too hot, to which I replied that’s why they call them hot springs. 

So relaxed, I was glad we had less than a two-hour drive to Calgary, where we are now. Tomorrow we hit the rodeo at the Calgary Stampede. This isn’t our first rodeo

RV life is good. With last summer’s trip under our belts, we have streamlined things significantly. Fewer clothes (Ruby as the exception), no dinette table crowding the RV (we always eat outside anyway), and no 2-vehicle convoy (we travel much better together now). 

Did I mention that Canada is beautiful?
