We were given the opportunity to borrow a friends’ canoe to take out on the Pembina River. The day we choose to head out was warm but windy and it took us an hour and a half to travel up river, a short distance that is just a 10 minute walk. After a short break we then turned back and made the same distance in just 20 minutes.
In Alberta we enjoyed a white water rafting trip down the Athabasca River. The water was very cold, even in late August, and the view was unforgettable.
We drove over to Old Fort Point just before sunset to check out a scenic lookout up a hill that overlooked the Athabasca River, Twin Lakes, and the small town.
