It wasn't to be a terribly productive day. In the morning we searched out the dump station site and found the HUGE compound full of free fire wood where campers were perfectly welcome to come and load up their pick up trucks...a far cry from B.C.'s little bundles at $5 a pop! and then went in search of the 'Native Prairie Trail'....we didn't plan to walk the entire 6 km, but thought we'd walk a ways and see what we could see. It took some searching but we finally found the trail....it ran alongside the road, but hidden by a screen of trees.
Ernie took the above picture....we were on the top of what appeared to be another plateau...there was a campground up here called 'Meadow's Campground' that was pretty much just a big flat field or Meadow....the wind was having it's way there! Campers were having to 'batten down the hatches!' or at least tie down the awnings.
and there is another look at the forest as it was behind our campsite...which was, by the way, 'War Lodge'
