We moved on down the road from Dunvegan today to Hilliard’s Bay on the shore of Lesser Slave Lake. It is the second largest lake entirely in Alberta and runs about 60 or 70 miles from end to end. Just for interest the largest lake is Lake Claire in Wood Buffalo National Park. We are dragging Mike and Janna along with us as we explore a lot of places that I have spent the last forty years just driving by.
The significance of this picture is one the wood not Mike. That is some of that fine “Heritage” wood that Brenda is always bugging me about carrying around and not burning. See Mike and Janna’s blog for some better pictures of the area.
Tomorrow we are headed more south and looking at the Pembina River Provincial Park just out of Entwistle, Alberta for our next stop. Thinking about that Pembina River country I should jump back a few days and mention that we had a visit from our good friends Dave and Sherry Schmidt down at Dogpound North on Labour Day. I neglected to get any pictures of that visit but we did manage to spend the day visiting and of course breaking some bread together before they, and the 50 bales of good Dogpound hay they bought from us, headed back north to their idyllic spot along the Pembina River.
