Mossleigh, AB

Sunday - We left Bonners Ferry and headed for the Canadian border. Oddly, we had to answer questions from both U.S. and Canadian officials. It seemed like they were looking for something or someone.Total time was maybe a couple of minutes total so no issue. I was concerned about overheating while going through the mountains but it turned out to be a non-issue. The highest temperature I saw was 213°F. 

We were planning on staying at a HH location but there is rain in tonight’s forecast and the spot was grass and dirt. I didn’t want to get stuck in mud so we moved on. We ended up going all the way to Aspen Crossing, which is where we were planning to spend the week. They found us a site near our friends. 

Monday - We went to a rather small Walmart Supercenter in Strangmuir, AB. They had all of the departments but all much smaller than what I am used to. And, not a lot of variety. 

It has been drizzling for much of the morning. It would be nice to get some real rain to clear out the wildfire smoke. It looks like it’ll be nice for the rest of the week.

This place really emptied out this morning as the three day Labor Day weekend ended. Plus, the damp morning didn’t really encourage folks to hang around.
