Day 55Whistler Regular Campground (FORCED)

July 27, 2009


After some discussion we decided to head back in the direction of Banff. We had not stopped at Kootenai National Park on the way to JasIMG_2379 per and decided that there were a few things we wanted to see there. We probably won’t be returning to the area anytime in the near future so we should take it all in now while we are here.

We were getting ready to eat breakfast when I noticed a distressed looking woman walking toward our MH. She knocked on the door and told us we were in her camping site. I told her no we were here all night and would be leaving after breakfast. She showed me her ticket and it was for the site we occupied. I guess they released the site before we checked out. Needless to say we couldn’t eat our breakfast in peace (her husband was sitting on the picnic bench watching us) so we packed up and left.

The drive back on the Icefields Highway was even more spectacular then the drive out to Jasper. We had a better view of all the glaciers and the ride didn’t seem as long as it had two days prior.IMG_2420IMG_2429

We arrived back at the overflow in Lake Louise and took advantage of another free night. The skies were gray and there was a storm in the mountains that dropped some rain and the temperature. Tomorrow we will head into Kootenai National Park and see what it has to offer.
