Quebec to Alberta in 10 days

In our last post, we shared with you about our time in Quebec City (plus, our RV repair time in New York).

This blog post could just be about how to spend a lot of money on diesel, while traversing miles of not-so-interesting landscape!

It was almost the beginning of August and we were keen to get to the Canadian Rockies, so it was time to put the pedal to the metal and get across a few of those annoyingly large Canadian provinces and the great lakes.

During 10 days of driving (over 2,500 miles), we traveled through Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan getting into Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta on August 8th.

On the drive, we made several stops of course, including nights at Algonquin Provincial Park, Parry Sound, Killarney Provincial ParkSudbury, Sault Ste Marie & Thunder Bay (all in Ontario, which turns out to be a pretty immense province).

The last push to the Canadian Rockies was made through Manitoba, where we stayed in Portage La Prairie and then through Saskatchewan, where we stayed in Swift Current.

The photos above are all from Ontario, which is really the only province (of the 3 provinces traversed, when getting from Quebec to Alberta) that we spent anytime in; we did some Rails to Trails bike riding and some short hikes (
Spruce Bog Boardwalk, Beaver Pond Trail & Two Rivers Trail) in scenic Algonquin Provincial Park. Killarney Provincial Park was a very pretty area also and we hiked Granite Ridge Trail & The Crack there, eating blueberries as we hiked. And we took a quick visit to Manitoulin Island.

We have no doubt that there is more to see in these vast Canadian provinces but, the Summer is short in Canada and the Canadian Rockies were calling to us.

Join us next time, when we get into the AMAZING Canadian Rockies, go on some awesome hikes and see a whole bunch of bears.
