Our WICKED camping trip!!!

We went camping again last weekend & had so much fun!! We went to a place called Bleriot Ferry Provincial Recreation Area. It is NW of Drumheller right on the Red Deer River. It was GORGEOUS out there!!! It POURED Friday night but Sat. and Sun. were the perfect Autumn days!!!! Bleriot Ferry is a small ferry that takes cars across the Red Deer River - about 42 feet, along a highway that goes behind Drumheller. It was fun!!! Drumheller is famous for it's Royal Tyrrell Dinosaur Museum, as many fossils and dinosaur bones have been found in the Drumheller Badlands. The hills you see in these pictures are world famous badlands!! Here are some pics of our trip!
Here is a pic of our site & our little trailer!! We were far away from everyone else, and were surrounded by trees so Brick could play & run off his leash for the most part!!! We always look for the best place for him.....what a spoiled dog eh??? The campsite had about 28 sites, and there were probably 7 or 8 sites with people in them. I could see it getting really full in the summer though!!!

The gorgeous sunset.

Me hanging by the fire! Tim was playing around with the colours on the camera (Black & White and Sepia)

Here is us waiting to get on the ferry - total trip across was about 4 minutes!!! LOL The ferry was on guidewires. The FerryMan has the BEST job!! He had 2 dogs & they were loving every second of their day!!!! Tim wants his job!!! LOL

Brick swimming in the Red Deer River.
The hills...aren't they cool??

Brick and my awesome fire!!!

My sleepy boy - he was SOME tired Sat. night!!!
The path to the river which was about 20 feet from our campsite!!

The Red Deer River

Tim & I at Horse Thief Canyon. So named because apparently back in the 20s, many horses would go missing from this canyon, and would be found later with a different brand.

The poser!!! He RAN all the way to the bottom of the canyon and then up again - he was a bit pooped after that!!! It was a LONG way down!!!

Tim & Brick exploring a little cave. In the summer, these hills are FULL of Rattlesnakes....yuck!!!!

Thanks for sticking around and checking out our adventures!!!! Hope you enjoyed them!

WOW! Looks like a great site you were at! I sure miss that kind of ecosystem. I live in the Mohave Desert in AZ. I came from Boston. Culture shock!!!
