Rain, rain, go away…

After we left Rosebery Provincial Park, we headed south via Nelson and then east and it started raining more and more, we had a thunderstorm and lots of hail (big ones), causing some hydroplaning. I got quite scared, but there was no where safe to pull over with a camper. You should have seen all the bikers hiding under any structures available!!

We arrived in the rain at Moyie Lake Provincial Park and set up camp in the rain. We camped there for one night only. Our campsite was # 68.

Skokijan, taking it all in his stride (a German shepherd male). Our two dogs Skokijan and Kris are well adapted to human eccentrics (like sleeping in a box on wheels, in the rain, far from home). In provincial campgrounds, dogs must be on a leash at all times, which makes things a bit complicated, especially when it is raining….

We drove back home via Radium Hot springs, through Kootenay national Park and the Vermillion crossing, a beautiful trip that we last took in 2009 in the other direction.

Me at the continental divide in 2009.

Also known as the Great Divide, the Continental Divide is the line following the HEIGHT OF LAND that separates areas drained by rivers that flow to opposite sides of the North American continent. In Canada, the water flowing in rivers eventually reaches the sea in either the Arctic, Atlantic or Pacific oceans.” Canadian Encyclopedia
