We woke with bad news. Rain, sleet, ice and snow was going to be on the road we had planned to travel up to Jasper. As our real destination is Alaska, we opted for Plan B: go around the bad weather.
This was not a good day for photos, so, sorry, there are none today (apologies to PB). By the time we left Willow Rock campground you could see the snow and fog enter behind us. We traveled toward Calgary and went north on highway 22 to Cochrane. Here we have found a campground at Springhill RV Park for the night. We have traveled only about 60 miles or so today.
The temperature is 41 degrees with a wind chill of 32 degrees. We hear that there is a heat index of 103 degrees at home. WOW, what a contrast! The wind has been upwards of 20 mph with gusts over 30 mph--not something that you drive in with an RV.
We hope that the morning fairs better for us and the Lord grants us good traveling weather. We hope to travel up to Whitecourt, Alberta, tomorrow and the through Grande Prairie and the Alaskan Highway the day after.
As a delightful end to our day we have a double rainbow. This may be our sign that tomorrow will fair better. We pray that it does.
