So, Kim and I spent the weekend in Nanton and had a wonderful, relaxing time. We stayed at the “Lion’s Campground” there, specifically in the “overflow” for $20.00 a night.
While the campground is nice and the actual spots are under trees and all have firepits, none of the sites have any services (no: Power, Water, or Sewer).
There is a dump station that can be used for $5.00 for registered guests or $10.00 for anyone else.
Kim and I were perfectly happy in the overflow camping area, which was a field, as this was our view.
Here is a panorama shot of the view out our front door.
The sunsets were amazing.
As were the neighbours, we had a pair of (our best guess) Golden Eagles, or some such brown eagle.
Our other guess was that they were hawks, but their cry was distinctly eagle in nature.
The most likely reason for their being in our area was due to our other neighbours . . . gophers (specifically Richardson’s Ground Squirrels).
We did go into town for a few minor outings, including a visit to the Air Museum. I didn’t get any pictures, but I think Kim did, perhaps with some encouragement she will share them.
It was a nice time to just go and relax in a field together. We didn’t even get into any arguments while there, so there’s some hope for us yet.
As a result of a smart suggestion from Kim we were able to secure a spot for the Labour Day long weekend, this time in Banff (My Mountain Home).
Well, the workday is almost upon me, so I do need to get moving.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive and keep moving forward!
