Spring camp

We went camping again at Waiparous Creek Provincial Recreation Area, Alberta, Canada, which is operated by Red Rock Sawmills Ltd.We were the only campers in the campground.

Skokijan just loves the quad.

Pap-Tert cooking in our Cast iron pot with a flat lid which has a rim to pile coals on top of. We found out about this pot from Fired up cooking South-Africa’s blog. You can read more about it on her post Amarula Malva Pudding

Our pot has legs, we bought it at Bass Pro

Meat cooking on our Kettle Barbecue.

After one rainy day and one sunny day we woke up to snow the next morning. which was so heavy it collapsed our canopy. Fortunately it didn’t break.

We had planned to stay another day, but decided to pack up and not take any chances.

Safe at home.

    These pics make the camping look so fun and beautiful. I’ll stick with looking at pics of camping, not the camping itself. 🙂


    • Tokeloshe says:

      It was very relaxing, until we woke up and had to pick up in the snow, but it was still an experience.
      Camping in a trailer is much better than in a tent 😉 I’m glad you liked the post.


  3. Oh my word – that’s extreme camping, Tok!!! snow, wow! Such a lovely post, thank you for sharing. This is a beautiful camping spot, and it’s so peaceful when you have the place to your self, isn’t it? Your caravan looks amazing – share some pics of the interior too?? thank you for the mention xx


    • Tokeloshe says:

      The forecast was for rain not snow 😉 I’m glad you liked the post 🙂
      I’m glad you liked it. It is, we have camped there a few times and we were almost always alone, or with very few other people.
      They are great, I will make a plan, it will be wonderful to see your’s as well 🙂
      I still want to make that pudding !

    We prefer NOT to camp in the snow . . . but we have woken up to the white stuff a time or two during Spring and Fall camping trips.


    • Tokeloshe says:

      Fortunately we had snow boots 😉 It was peaceful and beautiful but, things can go wrong especially when you are the only vehicle there.
      Wow, that must been something!

    Not very springy at the end! You were probably wise to scram. Beautiful area, indeed.
