Boys Trip / Girls Trip

Ken drove Steven down to BYU Provo last week. I told Ken when he got home that for years I have feared when he has walked out the door with Steven that he wouldn't bring my boy home to me. Well, it finally happened. 

The drive got a little exciting when a fire started under the hood of the Range Rover! They just put it out, and continued on - luckily without incident. Another fine example of British Engineering . . . 

Ken did take a couple of photos for me of Steven's dorm.

(Steven's bed is on the left.)


Carmen, Chloe and I drove to Waterton to go camping for a few days. What was I going to do, stay home and cry? This bear crossed the highway in front of us before we even entered the park! I thought it was a good sign for more bear sightings to come, but he was the only one we saw.

I really wanted to go hiking, so we hiked up to Bertha Lake. The trailhead is almost next to the Waterton campground, so it seemed like the easiest thing to do. Well, it was a little challenging once we got above the falls, but the scariest part was later that day when we found out there had been a cougar attack on that trail the day before. Yikes.

We almost missed Red Rock Canyon because we sat and chatted nearly the whole afternoon away at Remington's cabin.

Paddle boating at Cameron Lake. This spot is a jewel because it is very much like Bertha Lake, Wall Lake (which I biked to with Noelle and Wyatt), and all the other upper alpine lakes, but you can drive right up.

And for Carmen and Chloe a trip to Waterton isn't complete without the Surrey Bikes. 

We've never camped right in Waterton before, but I think we will do it again. Though we tented, we did eat out for lunches and dinners - our version of *glamping*.
