Canyon Campground

We had made some plans with some friends from Calgary a while back to go camping last weekend. Unfortunately, we neglected to book anything, which in Alberta often means you’re out of luck. That left us with first come, first serve only, which is always a gamble, especially when we were pretty set on going to Peter Lougheed and it’s about 3.5 hours. Luckily, out friends were able to get out of Calgary early, and scored us not 1, but 2 sites next to each other! It worked out great, and the weather couldn’t have been better!

^^Shortly after this picture, Harper took a hill pretty fast. Because the strider has no brakes (another selling point of the pedal bike she refuses to ride) she couldn’t slow herself down, and fellĀ hard on the asphalt. She’s got some wicked roadrash down one side of her face. She has also refused to get on anything with 2 wheels ever again^^
