Lorna and Lora's Excellent Road Trip

After two days of driving with a stop in Golden for the night, Lora and I have made it all the way to her new home in Medicine Hat. Our first road trip and I hope not our last, was a good trip, no problems in any way throughout the entire trip. Her cat Whiskey who took the trip with us slept most of the way in her cat carrier and never had a problem with the travelling at all.
We saw a lot of beautiful scenery along the way. The colours were gorgeous, the weather was clear for the most part with only about ten minutes of rain for the entire trip.
Everywhere the fall colours were spectacular.

This is Shuswap Lake in Eastern B.C. It is a huge tourist destination in the summer.

Can't pass up lakes and reflections. This is further along the Shuswap.

The clouds over the mountains were just hanging down. Lots of early morning fog when we started out for the day.

This hotel is between Revelstoke and Golden on the Trans-Canada Highway.

Bridge before Golden, where we spent the night.

I liked the fall colours here and the Grizzly Bear on the pedestal.

Roger's Pass Summit.

Pitstop at the Tourist Center in Banff Alberta. My beauty girl Lora.

Coming into Calgary here, home of the world famous Calgary Stampede! Only three hours more of driving from this point.

Alberta, the land of big skies, cows (ladies in leather) and hay bales.

And after about 13 hours of driving and one over night stay we arrived safe and sound in Medicine Hat. Lora's U-Haul is unloaded and now comes the job of unpacking everything and getting settled.
