Pretty much a day of driving to Shelby, Montana.
My train is tomorrow at 5:17 and I can stay at this Best Western until it's time to go to the train station and they'll drive me there.
We did the obligatory stop at the Milk River Visitor Center. We are in dinosaur territory today so they are everywhere.

Did laundry then spent the rest of the day helping John and Diane with various computer and cell phone issues. I think all is working well now.
We did take a walk over to the Highwood Golf & Country Club for lunch and later had dinner at my hotel.

So, it was a driving day. First to the Okotoks Erratic.

Then we went back to the Bragg Creek area and this time there was no snow and the temperature was lovely. We found that they were having a scarecrow festival and couldn't resist a good laugh at these two.

Another lovely day.

Then we were off to Vulcan. They've had a busy year with the 50th anniversary of Star Trek!

What a lovely city center! We only picked one thing to go towards and that was the +15 Skywalk. This skywalk is 15 feet above the street and links about 10 miles of the downtown so you can go a long ways without having to step outside if you don't want to. It's the most extensive pedestrian network of its kind in the world.
