Day 8 - Saturday 6/8/2013
No bear at this one this morning though.
I've stopped in Sparwood, BC before. Home of the world's biggest truck. Guys like trucks, it seems.
Anyhow, I was taking pictures of the truck, and this geezer rode up in the little electric cart.
According to his story, he used to drive that truck. But when I asked his name, he handed me a religious pamphlet proclaiming some miracle regarding some sainted female or another. And then he proceeded to complain that these days women with just a regular driver's license can drive the big ore trucks up at the mine. So I wished him a good day and left.
135 miles later I was back at Waterton Lakes, and the Prince of Wales Hotel.
I did what I usually do when at the P of W. Walked into the bar and ordered a Big Rock Traditional. And then I looked around and realized that I was the only one there. So when the waiter brought my beer I asked him about that, and he said that I was the P of W's very first customer of the season, as they had just opened for the season that very morning. Wish I could say that I planned it that way.
A few more shots from around Waterton.
And finally, this is Courtney, who brought me a beer at the Fireside Lounge and Wine Bar in Waterton. She's a very nice person.
